Kick Boats Get More Sophisticated and Numerous

Trolling motors, urethane bladders, and puncture-proof shells are some of the features offered with the growing number of kick-boats being sold each year to trout fishermen. What was originally invented to fill gap between float tubes and drift boats has become a specialty in its own right. “A kick boat is distinguishable by its parallel set of inflatable pontoons, held together with a metal cross frame that supports a mesh or plastic seat that sits high out of the water. Usually only an anglers’ lower legs will be submerged.” Gene Koppy in the Great Falls (Montana) Tribune.
