Help remembering title of a book I had as a child - 1970s

It's driving me crazy - the book was about fishing/fisherman and featured dark linocut illustrations. I think the cover was blue and black. My recollection is that the tone of the book was sad. This was in Canada, early 1970s, if it matters. Help!

...on preview, never mind but... Wake of the Great Sealers?

(because David Blackwood came to mind from your description).

You're welcome! Glad I could help. That book kind of disturbed me when I was a child.

Yes, I remembered a sort of vaguely sad/disturbing element about it too...
