Pruning figs

Question from John Carass

In forum: Edible gardening

I have a Ficus carica 'Brown Turkey' fig tree about 8' by 8' and I think it's time to prune.
After searching the net for advice I find so much conflicting advice. Some say prune heavily, some say not. Some say prune in Autumn some spring! Some say that fruit grows on new wood, some say on last years.
The most confusing bit of advice on one site said " ..figs fruit on last years growth so don't prune last years branches or you won't get any fruit" !! I would to know how to prune without touching last years branches?
Any help?
