Picture of a coracle
From R.J. Unstead's 'Looking at History'
I had to phone my daughter last night and ask her if she remembered which book we have that has a picture of a coracle in it. I had already narrowed it down to about five, and she suggested three, so we managed to find the picture I had remembered seeing.
According to Ian Harries, coracle fisherman, coracles are so light and portable that they can easily be carried on the fisherman's shoulders when proceeding to and from his work."
So the story behind this post is that I was looking up something on YouTube and came across this video of a man who makes coracles. I thought it was fascinating. Maybe you will too.
I was showing this video clip to my husband. He got a puzzled look on his face and said, 'Hadn't they ever seen a fish??'
