Drift Boat:

If you elect to book a drift boat trip, you will have the pleasure of fishing out of one of the best boats in the industry. I own and operate a custom made Adipose Boat Works Runoff. This boat is not a typical style seen on the river and made a long journey from Helena, Montana to it’s new home in Upstate, NY. Just like it’s home, I like to fish this beauty Montana style. No artificial lures like spoons or plugs are fished out of this boat. Flies, egg sacks under a float, and beads are used when fishing from the drift boat.

West Canada Floats:

Trips booked for a float on the West Canada will be done using an inflation Fly Craft USA raft. This raft will have aback rack for storage of extra gear and a cooler. This raft hold two anglers maximum.
