The completed stake net which is stationed on the rocks at Boddin, Angus viewed at high tide and has just been constructed by this team of five salmon netters. 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.
