Fishing Stories

We had a great day of chat and film at the museum. With local people explaining stake net fishing to visitors and many coming to specifically watch the film and see if they recognised anyone!
Anecdotes have been recorded in the project album at the museum, people remembered back to their working lives at Johnson’s fisheries.

One story about St Cyrus was that at new year the menu would be extended to include salmon sandwiches….the fishermen would stick a salmon or two down their waders on the walk back from the beach……then word got around as to where the salmon sandwiches would be served to celebrate the bells!
