Salmon have been netted on the River Tweed for centuries.
As many as 300 men were once employed in the salmon-netting industry near the mouth of the Tweed, catching up to 300,000 fish in a good year.
Today, only two salmon-netting fisheries are still in operation using the traditional methods.
From mid-June to mid-September look for the netsmen and their traditional boats, or “cobles”, at Gardo Fishery near Berwick’s Old Bridge and at Paxton House, about 4 miles (6km) upstream from Berwick.
