I should take some pics, it is in storage. It's a Valco 9' circa 1980's. Very stable for fly fishing. I made the push pole from pvc pipe with an elbow at one end, works great. I stuck a portable seat on it. There is a push pole holder you can buy to snap the pole into in a hurry. I've fished the Sac at Red Bluff to Lignumvitae Key in Islamorada with that little thing. It was the poor mans vehicle for me to learn by DIY saltwater fly fishing. I was inspired by Bill Schaadt who trailered his 14' car topper to Summerland key in the early 90's and fished Tarpon with Frankie B. I popped the pram on top of my truck and headed for the Keys. But that's a longer story.
