Historic fishing boats in the Salmon Boat Collection

The Severn Salmon Boats Collection’s salmon punt is the last remaining boat of this kind in working condition; its strange and interesting shape can be traced back to the drawings dating from the Middle Ages as a picture on the Salmon Boat Collection site below shows. The photo here is one of mine, and links to a larger version if you click on it.

The collection’s stopnet boat is similarly the last original of a type that used to be seen in the rivers Wye and Severn.
