Bag nets drying on the links - c1960

Up until the late 70s these could be seen stretched out on poles beside the Salmon Bothy to dry off and be cleaned. Climbing around and inside them was a favourite pastime for small boys at the time, although it risked getting a clip round the ear from some of the salmon fishermen.

Could the picture been taken a couple of years before? I'm sure the boys are brothers.

This could be Donnie and Raymond Robertson if taken a couple of years earlier. Possibly Ronnie Winton in the middle??

This picture was in my auntie Ena's house and I think it is Pat Swanson (left), Kenny Mmacfarlane (middle) and Alan Macfarlane (right).

The Great 'Salmon Bagnet'. Probably cotton. Nylon courling had not quite arrived. Of Norwegian design, 200 odd years old. A rare sight not seen so much anymore.
