This is simply the best fly fishing frame you can buy to go with the best fly fishing raft. The designer of the Premier Frame, Leo, has guided for us for years and committed himself to building the frame he would want to fish from every day. This is it. What you will find from other companies are lower quality whitewater frames and rafts retrofitted to try to accomodate anglers- some produced abroad. What you have here is a Montana made frame built specifically for our purposes to go on an American made raft designed specifically for anglers.
Premier Montana Raft Frame includes a raised front seat bar, cooler bar, foot bar, front and rear dry box bars, rear cross bar, stern section with internal anchor system, anchor rope, side rails, 8″ oar towers and oar locks, two swivel Tempress seats, a lowback rowing seat, a 36″x16″x16″ aluminum dry box and a beautiful powdercoat finish on the frame.
This frame is handcrafted in Montana with attention to every detail- completely designed with the angler in mind. The anchor rope all runs internal to the frame- preventing snagging of flies on the rope. The pulleys are all high quality Harken brand. Note the little “basket” that the anchor nests into to keep line tangle around the anchor for the angler in the back. The cushy Tempress seats are positioned specifically to maximize the comfort of fishing from the seated position when paired with a Sotar Strike. A powdercoat finish completes the premium look of the raft and prevents the oxidation of the aluminum that would to a transfer of black residue to your raft, hands, and clothing. Adding the optional features below rounds out your fishing-specific frame purchase.
