I spent a summer as a student salmon netter at Cromarty in the late 60's with another student called Duncan Craig. We befriended Jerry, who that summer was fishing Eathie Station single-handed. We had many adventures together and remained friends for years afterwards. Jerry was a "character" and a man of many talents.

My late father was Gerry's elder brother (Charles or Charlie) I knew of Gerry's existance and missed him by a mere 5-10 minutes when ordering flowers for Aunt Jeanettes funeral, around 1978 and in Dingwall. I am actually seeing Gerry for the first time in my 63 years and would dearly love to discover more about him.

I'm sure there are much better stories about Gerry than this, but two things I remember from very soon after I moved to Cromarty in the late 80s. He fell asleep with a cigarette on my sofa at an impromptu hogmanay party and burnt a hole right in the middle of it. And he tried to persuade me that the m in Glenmorangie was silent so it should be pronounced Glenorangie. Still makes me smile!
