Caddis High Sierra II Float Tube

The Caddis High Sierra II Float Tube
Below you will find pertinent information regarding the High Sierra II (also known as the Caddis II) round float tube. If you read and researched my previous post "Outcast Stealth Pro" you have found that these devices are quite pricy. In my opinion, they are the absolute best one can buy for "big water", but the cost may be prohibitive. Consider the High Sierra II as a low cost alternative, particularly where you have to pack in. Why? The Caddis High Sierra II weighs about 6 pounds while the Outcast Pro is about 35 pounds. Simple. I have both.

You can get your Caddis High Sierra II for about $99 online + shipping. Oh and don't forget the "Fishmaster Paddle Pushers"--they are a MUST! Here is a link for the Caddis II: Caddis Sports, Inc.

Specifications are as follows:

High Sierra II:
  • DURABLE 600D MATERIAL
  • NYLON COATED, MESH WORKING AND STRIPPING APRON
  • DOUBLE STITCHED ON CRITICAL SEAMS
  • ADJUSTABLE CONTOURED SEAT WITH DISCONNECTING BUCKLE
  • TWO MAIN EQUIPMENT POCKETS
  • FLUORESCENT SAFETY ACCENTS
  • 20 INCH VINYL PRIMARY BLADDER
  • SINGLE BACKREST BLADDER
  • FRONT ROD HOLDER
  •           Fishmaster Paddle Pushers
  • BUNGEE CORDS
Add some "Fishmaster Paddle Pushers" and you have the perfect float tube set up! You can now fly fish forward rather than backwards. Lightweight so you can easily carry on your back or on horseback. As opposed to conventional float tube fins where you HAVE to travel in reverse. Really a pain in a round float tube, but are nice if you are trying to slow down a pontoon style float tube on BIG water.
