The boat

Choose a day on our super skinny Hewes poling skiff, the best selection for furtive fish hunting. A classic shallow water experience for chasing game fish on fly or light tackle. She's quiet, stable, and features a forward casting platform, trolling motor, and excellent storage for 9' fly rods. This is also a terrific boat for a relaxing 3-hour eco tour of the miles of mangroves, oyster bars and hidden bays holding a variety of fish, birds and wildlife. Go solo or bring a witness, but two passengers max (plus your guide) on the pocket fisher.
