The day is beautiful, the weather's perfect, and the fish are jumping like crazy - just out of reach of even your best cast. What's an anxious angler to do? Why, take to the water after them, of course! You can do just that if you've had the foresight to invest in an inflatable fly fishing boat or watercraft. Being able to actually get out on the water opens up a whole new world of formerly inaccessible fishing areas.
Consider a watercraft as an extension of your waders. Just like waders, fly fishing rafts or pontoon extends your reach into formerly unreachable waters. Only, they extend that reach far beyond what you get with waders.
When looking at watercrafts, consider how much gear it needs to hold. If you're a minimalist Tenkara fisherman, you can probably get by with a smaller, simpler unit than an angler who likes to match the hatch right on the water. Doing that will definitely require a bigger work area and more room for storage!
Getting out on the water:
Our inflatable fly fishing boat and watercraft options range from float tubes and pontoons to the OSG Commander kayak.
We also carry the accessories you'll need to make the most of your time on the water. These include everything from oar stops and anchors to fins and a personal flotation device.
Fly fishing from watercrafts is easier with a stripping apron or basket, fish finder holster, and rod holder. We even have a self-draining rod rack that holds 4 rods, fly boxes, and the other gear you'll need once you reach the middle of that lake.
Other AvidMax-recommended essentials include foot pumps and repair kits.
