The Perfect Christmas Gift for Your
Idaho Fly Fisher Person
|Outcast Boats.com Slide Banner|
I have owned a one person, personal pontoon boat for over 15 years. It has served me well. These are really great for fishing small lakes and streams in Idaho fly fishing country. Their downsides, in my opinion, are many. One, they are not designed really for fishing; they are designed to move. Where do you put your rod if you need to change a fly or take off a larger fish? Where do you set your oars while fishing? Why don't they maneuver better?
Two, they are difficult to inflate/deflate and carry around. The frame does come off, but they can be a pain to put back together and on to the inflatable pontoons. The valves do work, but not very well--particularly after a few years. Why do they not carry any more load than they do? Where do I put my flies? Where do I put my anchor? Why do I always feel as though I am going to fall out? Three.....

Inflation takes exactly 10 minutes. I would recommend a foot pump, for electrics just don't seem to have enough ump to inflate. Maybe there is a 12V out there which can do, but at least the bellows style foot pump you can always take with you and takes up little space. Deflation takes about 5 minutes and the device folds up quickly into a 2 foot cube for easy storage. DON'T STORE WET.
This is the portable for those of us that fish a lot. Even with a PFD, I personally would not take it on BIG water, I have a KVI 12 footer for that purpose. But for most small rivers and lakes it is PERFECT! Try it out.
