The fishermen of Ullapool can't catch any fish, but over the sea on the Isle of Lewis, the fishermen are pulling in net after net full of herring. In desperation the women of Ullapool melt down their jewellery to make a beautiful Silver Herring and give it to their fishermen husbands to use as bait. Once the Ullapool men have worked out a way to outwit the Sea-witch who patrols the Lewis coast, the silver herring effortlessly attracts the shoals of herring back to Ullapool
