Mosquito 13lb Fly Fishing Kick Raft

Mosquito 13lb Fly Fishing Kick Raft
Here is what Darryl Osburn said about our new mosquito 13 lb kick raft. They tried it out on the Bitterrood River in Montana. Darryl was our first inflatable customer, and was the first person in the USA to sell pontoon fishing boats (Water Otter), so he knows his stuff. He has been doing it since the early 1980's...

Jack,
Test drove the Mosquito on the Bitterroot River and was impressed with the
ease it kicked and turned with flippers, also how little water it took to
float it. It's not for everyone because my experience is that not many
people are that proficient with flippers on moving water, but for those that
are this is it!

For Fly fishermen both fill valves need to be in the back of craft to
eliminate line tangle. Some kind of cushion or seat (Cazy Creek Chair )
would be nice. Possibly mount the back inflatable cushion under seat for a
second chamber for those that are concerned about that.

That was back in 2005. This picture shows some of the changes we tried. You can see a couple of different frame configurations below.

Sold Works Drawing of Mosquito and its Parts
The mosquito incorporates the best features of a small 1 person whitewater raft with the utility of a pack cat. This is the best small stream fly fishing boat one can imagine. It has a place to keep your feet when using flippers, a place to keep oars, the oar locks unplug incase you are boating on too tiny of a stream, and you need to use a paddle. There is no floor, so the boat can do bigger whitewater, and boaters can still stand straight up in the stream and fish. There is plenty of capacity for gear, and one can do a multi day self support trip with this boat. To boldly go where no boat has gone before.
