Drift Boat Fly Fishing on the Snake River

Drift Boat Fly Fishing on the Snake River

Photo shot the river bank at the Snake River KOA, 12 miles south of Jackson, Wyoming, September 18, 2007.

From Wikipedia:

The McKenzie dory or Rogue River dory also called by many a Drift Boat is an evolution of the open-water dory, converted for use in rivers. The design is characterized by a wide, flat bottom, flared sides, a narrow, flat bow, and a pointed stern. The sole identifying characteristic of the McKenzie dory is a continuous rocker. Rocker is a term used to define an arc from bow to stern along the bottom of the boat. It is this constant rocker that allows the boat to spin about its center for ease in maneuvering in rapids.
