Action Craft 1620 Fly Fisher is a 16′ boat and is powered by a Yamaha 90. Action Craft boats are well built and is the perfect boat for fishing the flats here in Hawaii. Built for fly fishing the boat has plenty of dry storage space, securely store 8 fly rods under the gunnel, large bow casting deck. The boat has a very comfortable dry ride, safe, and stable flats fishing skiff. The boat is equipped with a leaning rail on the bow for comfort and when extra balance is needed, 4 U.S Coast Guard approved life jackets, flares, VHF radio and first aid kit. The boat is clean and well maintained.
Having a flats boat gives the anglers the advantage when sight fishing. When the tide is low and fish are tailing in skinny water, wading is the best option using the skiff to move to different flats quickly and getting the best possible shots. When the tide rises and is to high to effectively sight fish while wading, poling and fishing from the boat gives anglers the advantage to see fish. Poling also allows us to cover more water to find the bonefish.
Meeting times will be determined based on weather, fishing conditions, and tides. I will contact you the evening before your charter to time.
