There are as many ways to go fishing as there are fish in the sea. Some of the best ways happen from the deck of a solid, beautiful boat. That’s probably why Sam Devlin has so many answers to the question of fishing. Just as you can drop a line in the water from any good stretch of riverbank, you can fish from any boat in the catalog. How you do it points to different designs. As you wander the Devlin catalog, you’ll discover that he offers designs that support great fishing from anywhere, from that same river or a quiet cove to blue water fishing with professional rigs. In any case, you can get to the fishing grounds and home again in style, comfort, safety – and in some designs – ludicrous speed.
