A Little Glitz on the River: Brett French Radio Show Preview
In the staid world of fly fishing, where drab colors like tan seem to dominate, it’s nice to see something a little wild like Garry Stocker’s colorful drift boat. Stocker co-owns Montana Fly Goods in Helena with his wife, Joan. About three years ago he bought an Adipose Flow skiff, boats that are built in Helena. To dress up the boat, he had artist and employee Nick Lulow create an unusual hook-jawed brown trout that now adorns both sides of the boat’s hull. Joan bought Garry tie-dye colored oars and casting braces to add to the brightness of the boat. The end result is not only a boat that is great to fish in but is also cool to be photographed in.
