Veteran salmon netter David Pullar, loading equipment onto 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.
