Over 50 years ago Bob Hewes created a unique boat, which later became the famous Hewes Bonefisher. Its innovative design would allow anglers to stalk especially spooky gamefish in very shallow water-in places where few anglers or boats had ever gone. Thanks to Bob Hewes and a handful of other shallow-water pioneers this type of fishing has grown into a sport all its own with increased popularity, tournaments and scores of dedicated anglers around the world.
On any given day, more anglers are fishing in more places around the world in a Hewes boat than all other brands of light-tackle skiffs combined. More light-tackle world records have been caught aboard Hewes than any other skiff ever made. For over fifty years serious anglers, famous guides and thousands of their customers have connected the Hewes name with unforgettable and indelible fishing memories and episodes.
