Hugh Docherty, loading a dirty bag net on to a coble (boat) Rockield, Ross-Shire, during a change of nets used to catch wild Atlantic salmon. 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.
