Bobby Bower is here from Rocky Mountain Rafts to share some tips on choosing an inflatable raft for fishing.  We find out why a drop-stitch floor can be helpful for fishing if you want to avoid a frame.

Bobby also talks about which boat is best if you don’t have a trailer and want to throw the boat on top of the car.  RMR is also working on a new inflatable standing platform for their fishing boat so there should be some great things to see this year.
