Drift Boat

Drift Boat

A drift boat is a specialized watercraft designed for fly fishing in rivers and streams. These boats are typically made of lightweight materials such as aluminum, fiberglass, or plastic and are characterized by their wide, stable design and flat bottom, which allows them to easily navigate shallow waters and rocky riverbeds. Drift boats provide anglers with a mobile platform to cover large stretches of water, access difficult-to-reach fishing spots, and maintain better control over their drift and presentation. They are often equipped with oars, anchor systems, and rod holders for added convenience.
