No fish means no food - and malaria

After hours at sea in a dugout canoe, Cornish fisherman, Andy Giles, faces the harsh reality of hand-to-mouth living.

He is spending a week on the island of Sherbro, in Sierra Leone in West Africa, as the guest of cousins Kabba and Ishmael. They fish everyday, but when they return empty handed no-one eats. And no fish also means no money for medicines.
