|"Paddle Pusher" Float Tube Fins|
|Conventional Float Tube Fins|
Many years ago, I had a pair of fins which I use for fishing small lakes that had a strap on heel plate and lateral fins. The fins were hinged and would swing the fin to the rear when you would thrust your foot forward. As you brought your foot back, the fin would open and thereby propel you FORWARD. So essentially you could literally walk through the water with ease and cover a lot of ground (i.e.. water) in the process.
|Conventional Fins - Another Type|
Per the blogs, reviewers say they are heavier. I do not find that to be true. They work very well and guess what? When you leave the water, you can actually walk naturally and not like a frogman for the fins stay to the side and do not flop underneath your feet. I believe if you try them you will be very happy and will not ever go back to conventional float tube fins again.
Hard takes, tight lines and screaming reel to all our Idaho fly fishing readers.
