Clackacraft Drift Boats – Lori-Ann documented her trip to Clackamass, Oregon in 1992 when she went to pick up her first drift boat. The first, “Long Tall Sally” was launched. The RW Guide Team have had several driftboats and abused them like no other, but they keep us fishing and floating! Jennifer Cornell and Lori-Ann are Clackacraft Pro Staff.
