Paddle Board Make & Model

Boardworks

Badfisher

While “Badfisher” isn’t exactly a name that inspires confidence for a fly fisherman, this inflatable offering by Boardworks is actually a pleasant surprise. It is aimed squarely at SUP based anglers and comes with a host of custom features that they will appreciate. When designing the Badfisher, Boardworks built upon the maneuverability as well as stability of their MCIT model, which excels in these areas. For added stability when casting or fighting fish, the deck is below the rail height. This lowers your center of gravity and offers increased width which is useful in the aforementioned situations. Longitudinal rigidity is also enhanced by the I Beam Stiffening System of this paddleboard and the tough bow cone ensures that it is protected from hard surfaces such as rocks and docks. The Badfisher is suitable for paddling in shallow or deep waters as it has rubber side bite fins that are glued on for the former along with a detachable center fin for the latter.

Fishing requires more gear than simply padding, so it is a good thing that the Badfisher has a bungee system for strapping these down along with Scotty Paddlesports attachment plates and plenty of D rings. Even the olive green color of this board is more than just an aesthetic choice as it also prevents any distractions from the sun reflecting off it. Additional comfort is provided by the foam pad on the deck, which is also beneficial as it sheds water better.

Overall, this is a solid entry from Boardworks and also much sturdier than one would expect from an inflatable. Best of all is its portability as it is compact enough when folded to transport with ease. There is no reason to worry about inflating or deflating this board either as this is accomplished very quickly via a high-volume pump and high-volume valves.

    • These wetsuit surfing booties work pretty well. A pain to take off, though. [attachment]
