Veteran salmon netter David Pullar, working with his tractor at Lunan Bay, Angus on Scotland's east coast, prior to fishing his jumper nets staked out on the sands. 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.
