2025 Flex Tiller

I have been a guide and guide staff manager for almost 30 years in Ontario. As the owner and operator of Silver Water Wheel Lodge, I continue to guide every day. Over the course of my career, I have driven and guided out of dozens of different boats and I can tell you definitively that the Kingfisher 2025 Flex Tiller is by far the best. In fact, I have not found a boat in the same class.

My KingFisher feels big and rides smooth. It flattens out the chop and provides a dry and comfortable ride even on the big water of Lac Seul. The huge casting deck offers plenty of space for two of my guests to cast and the tiller platform gives me the ability to backtroll the tightest contours with precision. I have a rod lock for guests along with a personal rod locker. My entire shorelunch kit fits in one of 3 big storage compartments leaving plenty of space for my guests gear.

I spent 20 years looking for a boat with all of these qualities and features and I finally found it. I love my KingFisher!
