Fly Fishing Boats For Reel


Custom handmade flat-bottomed fly fishing boats

 Have you ever looked at a lake and thought, "If only, if only I could get out a bit further where the fish are rising?" 

It's happened to all of us fly fishers at one time or other - when it would have been perfect to have had a small, light and sturdy watercraft that would enable you to get out further from the shoreline. Far enough so that our casts would land where the rising fish were. Or perhaps you've just wanted a small boat that was easily transportable so that you could row around your favorite lake or pond? 

Terry Hunt avid fly fisherman and boat builder of Penticton British Columbia has been making this dream a reality for many with his custom designed, lightweight, handmade 8' and 10' flat-bottomed fly fishing boats.

Some people wonder why a flat-bottomed pram might have an advantage over a float tube or pontoon boat? Actually, there are many reasons to choose The Gillie prams over the admittedly popular belly boats and pontoon boats including:

  • ​Five minutes or less to get into the water with The Gillie. How long would it take you to get into your waders, put on your fins, etc. and get into the water? A lot more than five minutes.
  • Plenty of hull space to carry your gear, etc.
  • Flat-bottomed, unmatched for stability.​ 
  • More versatile.

The Gillie Prams, beautiful and built of the highest quality materials; and capable of lasting for generations with proper care.
