JACKSON KAYAK DESIGNS MAYFLY SPECIFICALLY FOR KAYAK FLY FISHING

image

SPARTA, TN (June 2016) – Jackson Kayak announces the MayFly fishing kayak, a boat that leads the way in being designed and built specifically for fly anglers.  This sit-on-top kayak is designed for fishing waters that range from trout streams, to lakes and ponds and inshore flats alike.  Jackson has developed a snag-free deck by making it difficult to hook a line around foot rests, storage and other key components, but without losing the Jackson advantage of a great fishing set up.  This kayak will feature some great new fly fishing specific accessories and features like fly patches, fly rod and hidden fly box sized storage.

Kayak anglers will appreciate these MayFly features:

  • Thoughtful design to aid in fly line management
  • Longer length – 12’6” for increased speed and tracking
  • Versatile hull design for flat and calm moving water fishing environments
  • Increased width – 34” for enhanced stability while seated and standing, beginner-friendly
  • New Elite Seat System with Hi-Low and Fore-Aft trimming for better comfort
  • Rod tip tubes to protect gear
  • New hinging hatches and footrest designed to be fly line friendly
  • YakAttack track systems to add accessories and customize placement within reach
  • Standing pad for comfort when sight fishing
  • Standard accessories like RAM Mounts® fishing rod
  • Designed to easily add on Power-Pole® accessories for customization

The MayFly is a clean and well organized kayak featuring flip-down down and snag-free fly box storage bins with integrated fly patches on sidewalls. An open footwell area makes it easy to stand and move around, and present a snag-free place to strip line.

The MayFly’s longer hull offers a versatile balance of speed and manuerability. Well-suited for flatwater, it can also handle calm moving water environments common to fly anglers. The wider hull is great for beginners and anglers who like to move between sitting and standing. The new Elite Seat 3.0 System has multiple hi/lo positions and can move forward and aft for self trimming. A Therm-a-Rest® lumbar pad enhances seated comfort. The seat can also be removed for use on shore. Easily accessible storage areas on the deck, and bow and stern hatches to interior storage are secured with hinging hatches. The front hatch is designed as a paddle holder.

This new elite kayak will also come with the new Platypus® Hydration System, a new feature to Jackson Kayak’s top fishing kayaks.

“Kayak fishing had matured to a point where there’s a kayak made specifically for nearly every fishing style and body of water – except fly fishing,” explained Jackson Kayak Brand Manager Damon Bungard. “There’s always something that got in the way. That time is over. As the specialty leader, we felt it was time to make a no-compromise fly fishing kayak with the features and performance demanded by both beginner and dedicated fly anglers. We’ve come up with a hull optimized to perform in still-water and in-shore conditions, prioritized stability for standing and casting and developed features focused on fly line management – like a snag-free footrest and hidden fly box compartments. The MayFly represents years of real-world experience kayak fly fishing all over the world, and says that yes, you too, may fly fish from a kayak.”

The MayFly will be available at Jackson Kayak dealers in 2017. Manufacturer suggested retail price is $1,799.
