New rig! AIRE Super Puma w/ Montana Raft Frame

Hello Folks -

I figured I'd pop in and throw up a few pictures of my new ride

My original ride was a 12' CAT with fishing frame (catchercraft).

The new rig is an AIRE Super Puma with a custom frame by Leo @ Montana Raft Frames.

Frame is powder coated a grey/black to hide any and all scratches. The powder coating also prevents the frame black rub-off that all other frame are guilty of. No more blemished boats!

I have a custom front and rear casting deck being made by Leo @ MRF as we speak. What really sets this frame apart from the rest is the "through-frame" anchor system. No more getting your flies hooked on annoying anchor rope!

I am in SHOCK at how much better I prefer a raft over a cat. The raft can be walked in and out of ANY pocket, hold in any water, and is just overall nicer to row. I was constantly battling with the cat to keep a steady line. With the raft, I drop anchor in just about any water and shell hold! Having the water going UNDER a boat, rather than hit (2) toons from any direction makes anchoring a breeze.

Enjoy the pics, thanks! The orange looks A LOT sharper in day light!
