What Is That?

May be a little late in the year to make one of these a gift for your beloved angler, but what is it anyways? You ask "What Is That?" This is called a Coracle, a very tiny Welsh boat used to fish. Its actually been around since 7th Century Wales and is still around the world today. The vessels are mainly used on the River Towy, in S.W. Wales. Welsh Boat

 

 

 

 

 

 

These boats have a waist because of the fast flowing Welsh rivers. Its pear shape is much more stable. They are superlight with a just painted canvas over wooden stips and a leather carry strap. This enables the boats to be carried by anglers for an easy pick up and walk home. They can carry the boat with one arm and their fish with the other!
