Water Master Kodiak Fishing Boat

We believe the Water Master Kodiak to be the very best all around personal watercraft for fly fishing, especially on rivers. Pontoon boats might be more affordable but there is really no contest when it comes to making the absolute most out of your fly fishing experience!

What Makes the Water Master Different?

The Water Master does it all. It folds into an extremely compact package because of its frameless design so it can be carried on your back or go in the trunk of a car. This allows for complete assembly and dis-assembly in under 10 minutes. Simply unfold the raft, pump it up, lock in the oars, attach the seat, and you are ready to hit the water.

On the water, the Water Master’s large surface area, low center of gravity, and open bottom make it an extremely buoyant and stable craft. These same features make the Water Master highly resistant to wind and current drift so you don't get blown around. This also makes it very maneuverable with fins (something a Pontoon boat is not). It has also been proven to be a very safe and capable boat in whitewater situations.

The biggest fishing advantage however is that you can stand up inside the raft in shallow water and it will spin downstream and stay with you, generating very little drag and functioning as a wading aid. You can stop to fish a prime lie, fish your way up or down a riffle, stand on a midstream rock, or pull into shore and land a fish without having to get out of your boat or worrying about it floating away. When you have covered the water, or landed your fish, just sit back down and continue your float

Personal Watercraft Classes - Hosted ON the River!

Whether you have a Watermaster or traditional Pontoon boat, we teach classes on the river about safety, fishing, how to row, and properly fish from a one-man boat on a large river. Or one-woman boat depending on your gender. See a list of our classes and sign up. If you don't have your own boat, you can rent one as part of the class. This is a great course and worth traveling too even if you do not live near our fly shop. See our Class Calendar

Take it for a test drive and "Rent to Own"

If you would like to test drive a Water Master, come to our riverside fly shop and lodge and rent a boat from us. You can use try a Watermaster for the day and decide for yourself if it is something that works for you. Your entire rental fee can be applied towards the purchase of the boat! Even if you live outside the area, it is easy to rent a condo on the river next to our fly shop and plan a great couple of fishing days on the Yakima River and surrounding waters.

Over the years we have learned... April 24, 2012
Reviewer: Joe Rotter from Red's Fly Shop  
We try not to make any hard-fast judgments on equipment that people use.  Each to their own, but after more than 10 years of talking with customers on a daily basis and getting to know them and listening to their results and experiences we have to say that the Watermaster boat is the best personal watercraft for fly fishing rivers.  This did not come as a sudden surprise or change of heart, we patiently listened over the years and testimony after testimony in favor of the Water Master has finally gotten us behind this product.  It is the absolute best boat there is for an angler fishing solo.  Our customers spoke and we listened!
