This Chestnut Canoe was originally built with the outdoorsman of the early 1900s in mind. Chestnut's mission was to design a craft that would enable outdoorsmen to paddle small creeks as well as large lakes and be small enough to get through the then non-existent portage trails at the same time. To meet these unique needs, The Chestnut Canoe Company brought something efficient yet maneuverable into production. For the modern canoeist, both the primary and secondary stability of The Trapper are reassuring, though its stability does not sacrifice its speed. It has lots of space, for everything from a day of fishing to a week of tripping in the back country. It is a great canoe to use for improving your "J" stroke and can also be used with a double blade paddle. The Trapper combines the enjoyment of a stable fishing platform with the benefits of a small and light craft for portaging into small productive lakes.
