Adirondack fishing guide Scott Gardner just received his new Puffin Saco, and he likes it – a lot! We think it is neat because the Saco’s is just like the ‘Wee Lassie’, a small canoe that was popular in the Adirondacks a hundred years ago – although the ‘Wee Lassie’ was not a folding boat.
I just wanted to let you know that I got my new Puffin Saco on the water this weekend and I love it! Ice is almost out but couldn’t wait!
Taylor pond is a 4 mile lake in the High Peaks region that holds Lake trout, LL Salmon, Bass and Pike. The winds were strong and waves were moderate but constant. Boat handled great! I trolled and fished for 4 hours and was more comfortable than I have ever been!
Love the concept, love the boat! Will start hiking with it as soon as the weather is right for the remote ponds and lakes! Almost there! I will keep you updated with fishing photos from my guided trips and personal adventures.
Last weekend was beautiful in the northern Adirondacks! I took my Puffin Saco to one of my favorite remote ponds and caught the first of the season’s brook trout. The boat was perfect for the hike in as well as comfort and fishability!!
I can’t wait to guide my first Pakboat trip with clients!
