Layout & Design

Many of the original skiffs were designed on a “let’s take a skill saw to a traditional drift boat” principal. That’s why you see so many skiffs that look like someone took a skill saw to a drift boat! The Flow was designed from the bottom up. While traditional boatbuilding principals and construction methods always apply, no consideration was given to historical McKenzie and Rogue River designs. We had a list of things that we consider “requirements” for modern fly fishing drift boats – interior layout, side height, stability, balance, storage, cooler space and performance – and built the boat around them. The first time you fish or row an Adipose Flow you realize juts how different it is from every other boat on the market.
