Gerry's Skate
Added on 20 July 2009 at 13:47 by Garve
Here's an article in this week's Fishing News, in their '40 Years Ago' column.

"Cromarty fisherman Mr A G Smith caught the largest skate taken from Cromarty Bay for 10 years. Weighing 151lbs (68.5kg) the fish was caught in Mr Smith's flounder net."

A number of locals can remember this happening:- Obvously, it was a salmon net rather than a flounder one, but the Fishing News would have been careful not to say so! Gerry wheeled the skate through the town on a cart and then left it to rot below the Braehead, which stank for weeks. It was the inspiration behind a fancy dress costume in picture #1521. Does anyone have any photos of the skate?
