Bayliss Boatworks, Sept. 1, 2021—Old Reliable is a name long associated with the Bayliss Boatworks family. In 2003, offshore fly-fishing legend Nick Smith, set out to build 64’ Hull 5 Old Reliable. Smith, with an already impressive fishing history, set new records and achieved great milestones with Hull 5. In 2019 he set the world record for the largest number of striped marlin caught and released on fly in a single day, and holds multiple other single day records as well. Over the years, Bayliss Boatworks was active in supporting Old Reliable with maintenance and upfits, whether state-side or abroad.
