 Coracles are small traditional fishing boats made of wickerwork, with a waterproof covering such as animal hide. They were particularly popular in Wales but were also used in other parts of Britain and in Ireland. One of their most notable features was that they could  be easily carried on the fisherman's back. They are occasionally still used on the Welsh rivers Teifi, Tywi and Tâf.
