    Today as I set off to go catfishing my dear wife took a photo of me, and my new boat!

    So I thought I'd show you how sweet and simple a great catfishing boat can be! Perhaps some of you have seen this model of boat before...if not you are in for an great treat.

    It's a little small for a more than one person, but, I've found it just the right size for river fishing.

    Yep! The guy that sold it to me said that Jerry of Little Rock had one just like it!:wink:

    Yeah, I'm afraid that 2-strokes are going to be banned! But, with that new 4 stroke I can paddle 1/4 MPH...downwind and downstream!:roll_eyes:

    Sure, but it will have to be shipped from the United Kingdom! Or Arkansas!!:smile2:

    If anyone is the slightest bit interested in knowing more about these little boats, check out this web site:

    Can you just imagine how interesting it would be trying to paddle one of those boats in a straight line??:angry:

    I've got the older version of that boat, It's not quite as perty as that one but it's a good frog gigging rig:smile2:. The only strokes it will give you is packing it around pond jumping:eek:oooh::smile2:.
