Portable Pontoon Boat

sea eagle pontoon boatSea Eagle 375fc Fold Cat – (Read our Sea Eagle Review) – the 375fc model is 12 foot 4 inches long and holds two people and gear up to 650 lbs, but is small enough to fit in the trunk. My wife and I can unfold it, pump up the pontoons and outfit the boat in under 10 minutes. We can carry the boat with all our fishing gear in one trip to the water. The Fold Cat can be powered by a small gas or electric trolling motor, but we mainly use it on small lakes where motors are prohibited. Next Summer, we’re planning a float trip on the Green River.

Fly Fishing Rod

temple fork outfitters fly rodTemple Fork Outfitters –  (Read More about TFO Fly Rods) – I have the 6 wt TiCr. My rod belonged to a professional fishing guide on Utah’s Green River. He let us borrow a rod for a few days and said I could buy it or return it. After using it, I bought it. My next fly rod will be a TFO. The Rod Power Matrix definitely lives up to all the hype. I made a comparison table of action, presentation, distance, lift, weight of all the Temple Fork Outfitters rods at the above link if you want to see how each is different and/or the same.

Fly Fishing Reel

Waterworks – Lamson is well known for making solid reels that are solid values. Lamson was highly recommended to me by a friend.
