NRS fishing cat frame with anchor and stand up bar systems.
This frame is on a daddy cat tube set. If you look closely, you can see the anchor pully attachment on the back. there is also a cleat that is not visible that holds the rope. This frame is the same one as a whitewater frame with the addition of the anchor system and the stand up bars and the extra seats. We recomend tieing a small section of plywood under the fishermen's feet. That Plywood will make a more comfortable platform to fish from. NRS also offers diamond plate decks.
Delux Down River Fly Fishing Frame on a Daddy Cat
This frame features all aluminum construction. Speed rail fittings, and is UPSable. Note the diamond plate floors. A couple of very nice features on this frame include: Totally adjustable oarlocks, for & aft, Tilt, up and down. Oar Geometry is a breeze. There is a tilt seat that can sit over a cooler, or over a drop bag. These frames work best on JPW Daddy Cats or larger. That is because the straight waterline does not allow the boat to rock, and gives more flotation in shallow water, and that is when the fishing is good.

Riverboat Works El Tigre Diamond Plate Frame with Drop Bags
This is not a break down, shippable 5 bay cataraft frame, because of the diamond plate construction. The diamond plate makes it easier to walk across the deck and get around on the boat. Diamond plate floors on the frame are also available. These diamond plate structures make the boat more user friendly, but the frames are not upsable. The rainbow oar locks are adjustable fore and aft, and can be rotated outward. They are not as adjustable as the oar towers that are seen in the Delux Fishing Cataraft Frame. They are slightly stronger, however I have never seen an oar tower break. This picture shows a drop bag in one of the bays. Because the diamond plate restricts the movement of the cross tubes, customers should be certain of how they want their bays arranged for cargo and other functions.
