Memories of salmon fishing at the beach

We showed the 1930s film about salmon fishing at St Cyrus to a steady stream of visitors and local people.
It was great to hear locals explain the fishing methods being used and share details of boat building and personal experiences of fishing in all weathers with visitors from all over the world.
The stories from the day have been recorded in the album at the museum but this one is worth sharing.

Salmon Sandwiches

A St Cyrus resident remembers as a teenager being aware that the fishermen might take a couple of salmon home for the pot to celebrate the New Year.
Salmon were slipped in to their waders on the walk back from the beach and salmon sandwiches served in style after ‘the bells’!
