Here’s a molded polyethylene boat designed for sport fishing. Pedal-driven and loaded with features, it sells for almost $3,000. The following feature list is from the manufacturers web site:

    Features

    MirageDrive with Turbo Fins
    Vantage Seating
    Boa® System Lumbar Support
    Under Seat Tackle Storage
    Large Rectangular Hatch with Pivoting Tackle Management System

    Horizontal Storage for Four Rods
    Replaceable Mounting Boards

All that’s missing is a fax machine and wi-fi.

My father taught me that fishing is a way for us to get close to nature, and learn respect for nature. His philosophy: use simple equipment, and catch only what you intend to take home and eat.

Sport fishing? Some sport! Some fishing!
