Why Use A Boat Drogue For Fly Fishing?
A fly fishing boat drogue can help reduce drift on a lake or reservoir. Simply clipped to the boat this acts as a large drag to stop the wind purching your boat too quickly helping you keep the boat at a steady drift. Using a drogue on a boat slows the drift down so that the boat is not blow across the durface ahead of the flies and flylines cast ahead of the drift.
A Boat Drogue has advantages over an anchor

- Reduce surface drift speed
- Use two G-clamps so you can alter the position on the side of the boat to stop it yawing
