About Me Flyfishing guide, author and product consultant. I currently am head designer for and we build and market high tech inflatable boats fopr anglers and other. Sorry, no ultralight models right now. Lots of experience hiking, guiding, floating and fishing Alaska, Montana, Idaho, Utah, Chile and many other locations. I'm getting older (48)so I came back to some ultralight strategies I started persuing back in the 70's to make things easier for this old coot to still see the backcountry.
