Haaf netting is a traditional method of fishing for salmon and sea trout practiced on both sides of the Solway Firth. The film captures a few of the last remaining Haaf netters as they continue a millennial old tradition.

The film was was made in collaboration with Heather Andrews – a Glasgow based sound designer and field recordist. It was produced as part of RE Drift, an arts council funded project founded by RL Wilson.

Special thanks to Barry Turner, Mark Messenger and John Warrick, the Haaf Netters who feature in the film.
