The sport of fishing has been loved by many over the past centuries. You can fish from a shore, you can fish from a dock. You can fish while standing in water. But you can also fish from a float tube!
A float tube is a lightweight, single person watercraft that enables you to reach wilderness streams, ponds and lakes, usually where there is no boat access. Each small craft device is lightweight and designed for different waters and anglers in mind. are inflatable with strong inner bladders, while others have straps and harnesses which convert the entire apparatus to a backpack. tubes can be easily carried through the woods along rough trails to selected waterways. While you are in the water, paddles can be used by hand, while a pair of frog-flippers fins supply all the kicking power necessary to propel the float quietly through the water.
There are four different types of float tubes: the round float tube, the U or V shaped float tube, the pontoon and the cat. Each device is designed with various things in mind and for different types of water variances. But all of these small water crafts are also designed with solid, durable material and with safety in mind. The round float tube was the initial design for float tubes and is used in still water only. It's classic doughnut-shape has all the features of the more expensive tubes, but at a less expensive price. U or V float tubes have an open front that allows easy entry. They also have a lounge chair and positions the angler higher above the water. The pontoon float tubes are more advanced fishing crafts and provide the ultimate in performance, durability and portability. Pontoons offer quick-turn maneuverability and superior balance. Their seats are positioned higher which offer higher visibility and greater comfort. They have a solid, hull catamaran design and keep the angler completely out of the water, providing superior balance, complete freedom of movement and increased visibility.
