Salmon Fishing in the Pentland Firth

This group of men is emerging from the sea having had what appears to be a successful time fishing for salmon with a gill net - you can see the buoys heading out into the water on the right hand side of the image. Atlantic salmon follow the shoreline as they return to the river where they were born, gill nets were set out tied to the shore, and usually with a hook in the end.

Three of the men are each holding a salmon.
