About Stream Tech Inflatable Drift boats
"Fly fishing is our passion"
StreamTech Boats is a family business. We are an active group with strong roots in outdoor adventures of all kinds. We are all either active or past river guides that fly fish, run white water and take on challenging river adventures. Our boats were engineered in 1997 by our founder Link Jackson. Link was born in Montana to a family embedded in the back country guiding and outfitting business. As a young boy, Link and his father Wayne floated and fly fished the streams of legend across Montana. Love of rivers and fly fishing took root and became a lifelong passion. Like everyone in the family, that passion lead to kayaking, white water expeditions and all kinds of river boating adventures. We also do a lot of backpacking in wilderness, back country skiing and outdoors expeditions of many types. At a time when the children of the family were quite young, StreamTech Boats were created to give us a river craft that offered all of the drift fishing amenities developed in the hard drift boat world in a class V capable inflatable that would provide a more stable, safe and versatile craft for our family expeditions. Campfire discussions of boat design lead to formal engineering focused on producing a whole new level of rowing performance and functionality. Once it was designed, engineered, built and tested it became clear that given the excellent result, the boats should be offered for sale on the open market. It became a side line business. Today it keeps us all busy developing and testing new products, assembling and delivering boats and running every aspect of our company.
One of the best things we ever did was team up with Maravia Corporation to build our boats. Maravia's means and methods applied to our designs resulted in some truly outstanding boats that are a joy to row. Follow this link to see The Facts on Maravia Boats. Maravia builds a tough, durable boat that includes their "Drop Stitch" floors that are key to many of the outstanding performance characteristics of our boats. Because we are just as likely to float a day fishing trip on the S. Fk. of the Boise River as a week long class IV expedition wilderness run on the Middle Fork of the Salmon river or a class IV to V paddle raft adventure on any given day, we have developed all the accessories one could need for these uses and they are all available right here. We have learned to help our customers tailor their boat packages to fit their specific intended uses rather well. Just ask about configuration possibilities and we have the answers. We look forward to working with you.
