FISH SLAYER

The Rangeley boat evolved out of the need for a guide boat that provided a stable platform for fly fisherman to cast from and to cope with the conditions encountered in the large mountain-ringed lakes near Rangeley, Maine. FISH SLAYER is based off the offsets taken from a boat H.N. Ellis built for the Red Spot Fishing Camp on Lake Umbagog in the 1930s. Unlike the original Rangeleys, FISH SLAYER utilizes plywood glued-lapstrake construction with laminated ribs, full-length seat risers, and a slightly thinner gunnel.
