The East Cape Skiffs Glide is considered by many to be the best of the current micro-skiffs on the market today. Built to be nimble, light and simple, this skiff is elegant in it’s execution. The Glide was aptly named for it’s ease of use while poling and it’s ability to navigate low tide and even negative tide areas with it’s amazingly shallow draft. The fit and finish of these skiffs are exceptional, guaranteed to last a lifetime of fishing.
