Float Tubes
Float tubes are extremely maneuverable, ultra-light and loaded with features to offer a full day of fishing.

Fishing float tubes, propelled with legs in the water, are available in multiple configurations, with the easy-entry front design often seen as the most popular option – these come outfitted with a raised seating area (above the water-level) giving the angler a more advantageous height for fin kicks, a preferred field of vision, and a complete range of motion for casting a line.

Simple to get in and out, these river float tubes are constructed in a resilient denier-nylon w/PVC bladder to accept a full-size angler with ease, weight in at 7 – 14-lbs, and accept a weight capacity at 275 - 300-lbs.

Operating a float tube is a simple case of getting it on to the river, lake or pond, putting on a tight pair of flippers or fins (for maximum propulsion), sitting in thick padded seat, and than to start ‘motoring’ across the water – although these tubes are not suited to all-anglers due to nature of self-propelling from one spot to the next.

Also, due to the almost complete control in maneuverability, these floating tubes are ideal to fish in areas that are often unreachable by those wading, bank fishing, or even boating.

Manufacturers of these ready-to-go float tubes include Creek Company – Cumberland – Caddis - Outcast

A float tube often makes an entry-level paddling-machine, costing in the region of $99 - $300, for a full-loaded tube, complete with zippered cargo pockets, rod-holders, mesh storage platform, D-rings, drink holders, etc. - also, these pontoon-type inflatable’s offer quick inflation, deflation for convenient hauling and storage.

Float Tubes

Whether it is to fish a lake, stream or pond, a fishing float tube is designed to offer all the features a serious angler requires, with its superior steering, tracking, low-profile, and quiet motion across the waters - making it possible to almost sneak up on the fish.
