Best Drift Boats

Best Drift Boats
A drift boat may be the most expensive piece of fly-fishing equipment you buy this decade. Like choosing a spouse, it pays to look around, as the wrong choice can be costly. Drift boats aren't just fiberglass or aluminum anymore, and more than materials, it's the design, features, and rowability of the boat that matters. If you're spending your recreational time in the boat (all day for weeks every season) it should be both comfortable and appropriate for the water types and the seasons you prefer to fish in.

Choose Your Ride

The best drift boats are made from high-density polymer, inflatable PVC, fiberglass, or aluminum.
