Salmon Fishing on the River Tamar in the 1970's with a Mamiya Press 6x9

Some time in the mid 1970's I spent a morning with some local salmon netters on the tidal section of the River Tamar on the border of Devon and Cornwall. This trade is now prohibited and has been for some years with the fall in the fish population and that ban is due to remain in force for many years to come.

All images were taken with a Mamiya Press camera using a 6x9 back.

A line of work that has all but disappeared in mamy western countries, I think (river fishing, not fishing at sea). There was an article in my newspaper a few weeks ago, about one of the last eel fishing operations in the country. Very interesting, love the photos!
