  • Very Impressed

    Posted by Scott Oldmixon on Aug 14th 2020

    I have owned many different yaks over the years from a WS Commander 120, several Ascend FS12's, Native Ultimate FX12, etc. I bought this because of the stability for fly fishing. My first trip was on the James River in Virginia around Scottsville in mild flow with class I and class II waters. I had no problem standing and fly fishing even while floating though the class I ripples. I am a fairly big guy, 6' 235 lbs.. I highly recommend this boat for anyone wanting to do some stand up fishing. Great for all types of fishing and very comfortable even after 6 hours straight on the water. There are a few changes or updates from what the video shows. Seat bag is different, no platypus bag on the one I bought but a nice storage bin under the seat. My only comment is that they should put more detailed, up close photos of this boat on the Jackson website.

  • Customer Service

    Posted by Jim Sturgeon on May 29th 2020

    I am a new customer and longtime fly fisherman. I need to say that it is seldom you come across a world-class quality product with a world-class customer experience. Jackson/Orion has both. I am a 60 year old outdoors man. I own a Mayfly & 25 Orion cooler et al. This company is one of the best I have ever encountered. Matt Cunningham was both knowledgeable and kind in his dealings with me. Having spent over $2K with Jackson within a week. I believe we have formed a lifelong business relationship with like minded people. BTW, The Mayfly is the best yak for guys that fish. They nailed it! If you want the best, then look no further.

    This is a great kayak. I strictly fly fish and that is the only reason why I purchased this kayak. The fly rod storage is great in fact sometimes I will carry three fly rods with me on a trip. I can store one on each side of the Mayfly securely. In fact the recessed fly reel section allows me to stow a 10 weight fly rod and the reel.
    The ability to install a Micro-Anchor is a plus as well.
    The fly box storage sections are very innovative making this the only kayak on the market designed for the fly angler.
    Great job!!!

  • A slim-lined Big Rig!

    Posted by Jason Ricketts on May 20th 2020

    The Mayfly is phenomenal. Its heavy but not as bulky as a big rig. It does very well in wind and tracks extremely well. I love the built in side pockets and clean deck space. I mounted my Hummingbird Helix 7 on the sliding footrest and placed a Noqua 7Ah battery inside of the footrest. This made for a very clean fish finder install. I used mine in both rivers and lakes. I am super impressed with this kayak.
