In Memory of

“I began poling skiffs in 1975. At that time the skiffs I had available were un-usable for the flats because they were based on hulls which were designed for applications completely antithetical to the concept of a shallow-drafting, quiet and easy to pole flats boat. It was by main force only that my anglers ever got any shots. The Islamorada 18 is at the other end of that spectrum. It has enhanced my ability to provide my anglers with a much greater percentage of high-quality opportunities at our target species. It has completely spoiled both me and my anglers by eliminating all the limitations previous boats had that resulted in so many fishless days.”
