Film Showing at the Museum

Up-stream
A story of the Scottish Salmon Fisheries
Filmed at St Cyrus in 1932

The film depicts two methods of salmon fishing – it follows a group of fishermen as they wheel their boat to shore, row out to sea and haul in their catch. Then shows the work of a single Stake Net fisherman netting a catch. The salmon are loaded into baskets and carried into the village by donkey, while the fishermen haul their nets ashore to dry. The final section of the film shows the river Dee with salmon leaping upstream against the water torrents.

All welcome !
