Dear Platt:
Enclosed is a photo of me in my Nimrod™ taken last October on Huggins Lake, a 17 acre brook trout water that we manage on State land in southern Delaware County. Unfortunately, on the day this picture was taken neither me nor my fishing partner caught any brook trout. We both each had one on for an instant but neither were able to land our fish. I had caught numerous brook trout on earlier trips during the summer and early fall, most larger than 12 inches and some up to about 16-17 inches. The fish actually towed the boat on some occasions. Huggins Lake is 1.9 miles back in from vehicle access and the Nimrod is my only chance to fish the lake from a boat. I hate those belly boats. Mostly I fly fish and the boat is very stable, even with me flailing around with the fly-rod. The ultra light boat is a real joy to pack in and to fish from. I am really looking forward to building the Classic 10™ and sailing it this coming summer. Maybe I will be able to send you a picture of me actually catching a fish from the Nimrod in the future. Meanwhile, I hope that this photo is of some use to you.

Walt Keller
