On a recent trip to the Green River in Utah, many had float tubes in the horseshoe and pontoon shape. They used conventional fins to slow them for fishing, but if they really wanted to hit a specific spot they had difficulty and most simply just floated right by. If you ever try the type of tube recommended here, with the fins suggested in my next post, I don’t believe you will ever go back to horseshoe or pontoon style tube with conventional fins.
Here is the one I use—the Caddis Sports High Sierra II float tube. It costs about $80-$110. It is sold by multiple vendors on line. Shipping is nominal for it only weighs 6 pounds. A small plastic hand pump is all one needs to inflate in 5 minutes, so it makes a perfect partner for high mountain lakes whether by foot or horseback. This Idaho Fly Fisher swears by it.
