Photographer's Note

"He who dreams on the Solway wakes up in the next life" R.L.Stevenson
Haaf netters must remember this as must anyone venturing out onto this treacherous firth.
Another image of haaf netting on the Solway Firth. needed my zoom to pick out this one. he is far out on the shore. The haaf netter is crossing back across the sand flats after fishing a tide. There are usually a number of men in the water at a time. This man has quit for this tide, probably because not only is the tide ebbing away but he has had no luck. It's been a poor season to date. If there are salmon about, they are not where the men can get at them: "there's no ground" as they say.
