The Glades Skiff Advantage

The redesigned Glades Skiff™ adds a new dimension to shallow water fishing. Weighing only 440 pounds, the skiff drafts just 4" (Loaded) which allows access into backcountry areas rarely fished. Fly-fishermen in the market for a skiff that can weave in and out of the narrowest mangrove canals or stalk the flats in search of nervous shallow-water game fish, will definitely want to take a hard look at this skiff.
