Old Tarlach, the fisherman
Old Tarlach is never home when the weather is good and often away even when it’s raining or drizzling, fishing down the river. He sells what he can’t eat in the market, smoking or salting whatever it’s left at the end of the day. Once a much hen-pecked man, he is serenely enjoying his old age. His only daughter, Miep, married one of the Lum brothers so Tarlach sometimes takes a small pack of the Lum children with him for a day’s fishing (usually in the summer). He is followed by cats wherever he goes.
