72′ Bayliss Boatworks Old Reliable
Join us as we take you aboard the 72-foot Bayliss Old Reliable with exclusive pictures of Nick Smith and his new boat. After splashing in July of 2021, this highly customized craft was purpose built for chasing billfish on fly and prepped for a multi-year Pacific tour.
And the day before Old Reliable shipped out, Nick Smith and Capt. Chip Shafer provided InTheBite with a guided walk-through to talk about the boat’s personal touches and offshore capabilities. It is rare to see a boat so personally customized for one goal and that is chasing and catching billfish on fly. Enjoy this exclusive sneak peek. Because Nick and Chip covered so much with this boat, we’ll be covering more ground in a multi-part videos series as well.
