A salmon netter hauls salmon from a 'jumper' net at low tide on the sands at Kinnaber, Angus during a May hailstorm. The once-thriving Scottish salmon netting industry fell into decline in the 1970s and 1980s when the numbers of fish caught reduced due to environmental and economic reasons. By 2007, only a handful of men still caught wild salmon and sea trout using traditional methods, mainly for export to the Continent.
