The Spear Boatworks Story
In the early 1970s, after an attempt to become a professional jazz guitarist, Harry Spear hitch-hiked his way to the Florida Keys. At the time, the waters were pristine, the fishing was unbelievable, and innovation was at its height.
Harry cut his hair, got a job as a mate, and began to save up his money to venture out on his own. Once Harry was able, he purchased a skiff, and began his career as a salt water flats guide. This career would span nearly four decades, with 7,500+ days on the water. During those years Harry met some incredible people, built friendships with some of the greats, and learned a lot about life, fishing, and what truly makes a skiff great.
