Athol Matheson, of Fairfield, sells lures at a market day at the Taieri Historical Park and Museum in Outram on Sunday. 

Mr Matheson (82) said the market was designed to promote awareness of the park.

"It’s a marvellous property."

Raised on a farm near Dunedin Airport, he attended a school at the park.

At the market, the avid fisherman sold his "surplus supply" of fishing lures. He said he had heard through "the bush telegraph" anglers had begun catching salmon in Otago Harbour.
