Hill Country Fly Fishing just got a little bit easier, with the addition of a “Towee Boats Guide Tested Skiffs” River Master 16 to my fleet. This custom skiff is manufactured in McMinnville, TN, by Todd Gregory and his staff of talented builders and riggers. The River Master 16 drafts less than 4″ fully loaded, and can easily be maneuvered with oars, trolling motor, or 2o HP Suzuki outboard. This boat is perfect for the lakes, rivers and streams here in TX! It is easy to tow and launch, roomy enough for 3, and stable.
As you can see from the picture just above, there are two bench seats, fore and aft. The removable rowing frame is located in the cockpit. This allows the guide to sit on a cooler, and control the boat from there, giving fishermen plenty of room to cast! With 3 options for oar lock placement, one can row facing the bow or stern in comfort. There is also a 55# thrust remote control bow mounted trolling motor for “No Motor Zone” areas.
Come join us for a great day on the water! Until then, “Tight Lines”!
