My Fishy Life
Most of this story is based in New Zealand where I was born in 1935. I guess I was about four when I caught my first fish. My older cousin who lived across the stream from me taught me to bend one of my Mums pins in the shape of a hook and using a length of cotton, presto, we were fishing! Bait was worms from the garden and we fished from the foot bridge between our properties.

McLay 460 Softie
McLay 460 Softie
The Softie models are a relatively new development. The most notable feature of which is the closed cell EVA fendering running around both sides. This stuff is the same material that is used in your life-jacket. So one immediately obvious advantage is that the McLay Softie must surely be one of the most "unsinkable" of all water craft. This buoyancy is further enhanced by the addition of a fully welded 4mm tread plate floor creating a water tight compartment.
