Steamboat Springs, Colo.-based Creek Company brings 25 years of expertise in the inflatable personal fishing craft market to the new, exciting category of stand-up paddling with the release of the “Osprey”, the most stable and versatile fishing-specific inflatable SUP on the market.
With a unique fishing-specific design, the Osprey is lightweight, portable, super stable and easy to use. Its stealthy design lets you cover more water with a paddle than other fishing craft and offers greater visibility for sight-fishing your favorite flat. Intuitive fishing-specific features let you fully customize your fishing platform for your specific application, including D-rings for securing such gear as coolers and dry bags, and three Scotty mount pads for rod holders, anchor drop, GPS’s, fishfinders and more.
The Osprey also features a sport tail design and a stomp pad allowing for easy wave surfing and river maneuverability on non fishing days!
With Creek Company enjoying its best year in its 25-year history, the Osprey was introduced to rave reviews at 2012’s iCAST tradeshow. “We really believe this is going to be THE fishing SUP,” says Creek Company president Chris Timmerman, whose office sits a cast away from the Yampa River. “It provides a great fishing platform for covering more water, better casting range and a higher sight line for better sight-fishing. Plus, it’s super fun to paddle in any water.”
At 11’5” long and 35” wide and 6” thick, the uber-stable Osprey lets you stand-up paddle to your favorite fishing flat with clear visibility and cast large flies with full range of motion to everything from tailing bonefish to rising trout. When you need a break or to change flies, you can sit on a cooler strapped amidships. It’s perfect for mountain lakes and rivers, coastal waters and bonefish flats. Plus, at only 38 lbs it’s also one of the most compact SUPs on the market, rolling up for easy car transport and garage storage back home or even airplane transport to your favorite fishing destination.
