Looking for the Ultimate 

Still Water Fly Fishing Boat?

Our friend Joe Cunningham has designed the 

best one-man fly-fishing boat for still water.  

The Cunningham Chironomid is a trimaran boat, built around a canoe hull. Because of this It has the light weight and  ease of movement through the water of a canoe, but with stability that allows the angler to stand while fishing. It is propelled by oars, rather than a 

paddle and has the other things lake fly fishers 

need, like a rod rack and double anchors. The boat is easily loaded on a roof-rack by one person. 

If you fish lakes, you need to see this boat.

Cunningham Boats website.
