Salmon netter Ian Falconer hammers in pins to secure the poles  on the foreshore at low tide during construction of the stake net on the rocks at Boddin, Angus. 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.
