A picture of one of the elusive Findlay fish.
Shane Wm Edwards sent me this photo and it has to do with Findlays and a fish story as he said. Anyone know what this is?
Bill Russell I’d like to hear Shane’s version of the story. I have one of these which we hand moulded from the original in the late seventies. The original belonged to my late uncle Terry Russell. There were a few that made the trip to the Perth scissors factory for a nickel finish. Glenda Mahoney may remember her father having one of these.
Glenda Mahoney I certainly do remember. We have Dad’s collection between the four of us. Thanks Bill Russell.

So what was Shane’s story?
Shane was told that when men were being trained to work the “molds” that they had to make a metal fish. Before they were hired on the fish had to be up to standard and they were also bottle openers. I came across a small heavy fish Saturday and that was the story I was told. I wondered if anyone can verify it.
Greg Nephin– Not sure if this is a Findlay but looks familiar, was my grandfather’s who worked there
