  • Description

    No title or intertitles. Unedited material.

    High angle shot of a group of fishermen standing by their boats at the water's edge. Closer view of two fishermen standing on the front of their small boat pulling in a net. High angle shot of the two small fishing boats being rowed out into the water. Closer shot of one of the boats laying the net. Shot of the other boat being pulled in to the shore. Various shots of the boats being rowed through the water and of men pulling on the nets to haul in the catch. This may be an estuary or wide river rather than the sea as there seems to be buildings all around. L/S of the nets being pulled in.

    M/S of an elderly fisherman holding up a large salmon and whacking it with a piece of wood to kill it. He looks at the camera after he has hit it. C/U of a large salmon being held by a fisherman. More shots of the nets being hauled in and the catch being shown off. A very large salmon is pulled in and gets hit repeatedly around the head. The salmon is held up to the camera. Paper records suggest that this takes place at Willis, wherever that may be.

    Note: two EP091 reels exist. This reel is made up of unedited material which may, or may not, have been destined for Eve's Film Review or Pathe Pictorial items.
