“Joe Rotter is a long time professional guide, casting instructor, and rowing instructor at Red’s Fly Shop and Canyon River Ranch Lodge in Washington State. The unique location of their shop and lodge also makes these guys a great outpost and resource for learning more about rowing drift boats. Joe has rowed and guided out of almost every drift boat made but spends nearly all his time now in the newest Headhunter Skiff. On slightly rougher rivers he prefers the nimble but stout 15′ LP.
The Headhunter Skiff is built for the person that wants no-nonsense fishability. No other boat that combines the stability, toughness, and buoyancy found in the most current lineup of Clackacraft Headhunter Skiffs. These boats do everything we ask them to do without complaint. Our rivers in the Cascade Mountains of Washington State can be tough on boats. Good think we have Clackacraft right here in the Pacific Northwest to build us the best drift boats on earth.”
