Description

Set against an almost cloudless sky two men are shown pilchard fishing; a seine net trails behind their rowing boat. A salmon jumps out of the water perilously close to their vessel. Although it has not yet been possible to identify the exact location, the sand bar dividing the expanse of water, and a group of buildings visible on the lower slopes provide useful clues.
