SmithFly designs and builds modular gear for sportsmen who want to be able to change and reconfigure their gear to suit various conditions and situations. Our goal is to build as much as possible in the USA. From our hunting products to our Dolly's and Motor Mounts -all made in small batches right here in our own small workshop in an 1800s former distillery in Troy, Ohio. Most of our soft goods are made in the USA by small industrial sewing contractors that sew predominantly for the US military. Our unique small batch mentality allows us great flexibility to test and maintain the highest standards of quality possible.

The Big Shoals Raft

The Big Shoals raft is one of the few fishing rafts on the market that gets three people on the skinniest of water and weighs in at less than 130 pounds. Oh, and did we mention it fits in the back of a pickup or on top of a car or SUV? Yeah, you'll want one of these for sure.

"This thing is built to take abuse, and even with the anchor and all the other stuff you take fishing, because you can take 3 people, it's still light enough to do some insane portages and put-ins/take outs..."

"I have been incredibly impressed with how amazing this boat has worked. We have skinny water with no boat ramps and the boat has outdone every other craft thats on the water... "
