On the 4th of December last there was captured in a tidepool
at Bridgewater, a fish which the Salmon Commissioners
have decided to be a true salmon (Salmo salar) in the grilse
stage, that is on its first return from sea, and acting on such
decision the Government have paid to the captor, Mr. Joseph
Cronley, the promised reward of 30 pounds.
