NRS Slipstream Series
Deluxe packages starting at $4,495.00 • nrs.com
With 50 years of innovation, NRS (Northwest River Supply), is highlighting their well-deserved reputation in whitewater and marrying it with the angling community. This year, NRS released an angler dedicated inflatable, the Slipstream series. A sure challenger to any drift boat, the Slipstream is worthy of your butt in the rower’s seat, or if you’re lucky, braced in the bow casting to dry-fly-slurping trout.
Gone are the casting platforms, replaced with a drop-stitch floor, coated with EVA foam for all day standing comfort and added protection. They have removed most, if not all, snag points inside the raft, with an internally routed anchor line, valves moved to the rower’s bay and d-rings and handles moved out of the way of that never ending pile of fly line.The series come in sizes to fill your every need: 9 foot 6 inch, 12 foot 9 inch and the multi-purpose built 13 foot 9 inch, scratching that itch as a day tripper while capable as a gear boat on multi-day trips.
With a price point worth of a second look and a line on the Christmas list, Deluxe packages start at just $4,495.00. The Slipstream is that one gift you can look forward to assembling. The entire family will be anxious to get on the water Christmas morning. Heck, make it a mulit-day trip and drag it out to New Year’s. — Eric Crawford
