Future Gink & Gasoline Adipose Flow Skiff

For a few years now, Louis and I have had the dream of getting a Gink & Gasoline drift boat for all of our fly fishing adventures. After rowing many different drift boats and skiffs on the water, and talking with different boat manufacturers in the industry, we’re very happy to let everyone know that we’ve decided to build a long-term partnership with our good friends at Adipose Boatworks. As you’re reading today’s post, our long-time friend, fly fishing guide and photographer, Rob Parkins is in transit from Victor, ID trailering our new and fully pimped out Adipose Flow Skiff. Louis and I will be heading out of town this Saturday, to meet up with Rob for a few days of streamer fishing on the White River. There’s no doubt in my mind that it’s going to be a dream trip for all of us. There’s nothing like falling in love with a new boat and dropping it in the water for the first time. I’m already dreaming about what a pleasure the Adipose Flow Skiff is going to be to row and fly fish out of. Big thank you to the entire crew at Adipose Boatworks, who fully believes and supports what Louis and I are doing with Gink & Gasoline. We’re permanently indebted to your company, and jazzed that we’ll be sporting, in our opinion, the highest quality drift boat/skiff on the market.

This trip is going to be a really special one for a couple of reasons. The first, which many of you can relate to, is the fact that we’re going to be able to meet up and fly fish with one of our buddies, who inconveniently lives on the opposite side of the country. The second, is the fact that we’re going to be fly fishing on the White River, which has one of the highest trout population densities in the entire country. We fully intend to make the most out of our time together on the water, and we’re going to fly fish as hard as our bodies will let us. The last time Louis and I visited the White River in Arkansas, we both saw the biggest trout of our lives. I’m talking about brown trout that would have easily taped over four feet long.

For those of you who don’t know, Arkansas DNR on multiple occasions, have shocked trout in the White River that weighed well over forty pounds. We failed to hook any of those monsters on our previous trip, but this time around, we have high hopes for getting the job done. Rob Parkins will be the anchor of our team, with his insatiable appetite for tying and fishing streamers. We look forward to bringing back a full synopsis of our trout endeavors in Arkansas to all of you, as soon as we return back home. We promise to do our best to keep you updated on our social media channels during the trip.
