Photographer's Note

A view across the the Solway merse with stake nets in the distance. The footprints are made by a fisherman walking out to check the nets. The nets, strung out on wooden posts, form a maze in which salmon are trapped. This route across the sands is taken also by haaf net fishermen, who stand chest deep in the tide holding a wide beam to catch trout or salmon.View of a haaf net fisherman
