Blood, Sweat,and Skeeters

After many nights of sanding, fiberglassing, painting, cutting, carpeting, glueing and after loosing many pints of blood to the damn northwoods mosquitos; the dingy is done.  Built with a 4'x5' casting platform, its first go was a success. 
I have 4 kayaks a canoe, jon boat and a full sized fishing boat, but I needed a craft that I could stand up and flycast in small streams and ponds.  In comes the 8'8" dingy.  Charlie and I tested it out on a small lake last night and it worked flawlessly.  Look out Redhorse, cause here we come.


  1. Nice job giving it new life. You can take that on some nice small stream water. Looks like fun!

  2. Thanks, I'll be testing it more on Monday then a river float after that!
