WTB - Streamtech Salmonfly

If you have one or know of someone who does I am in the market and would like to purchase ASAP. I live in Oregon and am willing to drive great distances for this boat in solid condition.

Thanks in advance for any leads you might have.

Respectfully,

Desk

hows your search going for a used one?? I have only seen one of these over on this side of the hill on the mckenzie and am curious how hard it is to find a used one!

Finding a used one is EXTREMELY difficult. They rarely pop up on Craigslist or forums and the 13' 6" model is even tougher to find. If I can't find a used on by April I am going ot have to bite the bullet.

On the bright side, I guess this means those who own them don't want to part with them.

Stream - tech Rafts

The best Rafts available! Kind of a in-the-know type product. I did much research on everything available including interviews with numerous guides & outfitters, raft manufacturers & In my opinion, they are built as a no compromise product, you get what you pay for. I have had mine for almost 10 years and it is in incredible condition for the use I put on it! INCREDIBLE PRODUCT. Buy one raft for a lifetime and be done with it!!!!!!!!!!

For Speypages folks, I would compare it to a fine bench-made reel! Yep, the Bogdan of rafts!

Derek is the west coast rep. Calling him is worth the long distance charges. He'll know the skinny on any new, used, demo boats in the region.

I put my Green Drake up for sale a few years back in hopes of funding a sled but the big rivers started closing and reality kicked in so I kept it. Best decision of my life! Now that I think back it is interesting how few inquiries I had considering the ridiculously low price I was asking. I guess it is just a newer company that's just now starting to reach it's audience. Good job Link!

Well, I just broke down and ordered a new one. Scheduled to pick it up on the 24th of March. Pretty stoked, but she ain't cheap! :-)

I will post pics once I pick her up.

Dude! You inspire me. I need to take some lessons from you bro! How about a float down the D for some Salmon Flies. Maybe we could row over to our favorite spot and walk up river? Let me know when it comes in so I can come check it out.
