White River Fly Shop® Lost Lake Open Front Float Tube
10 years tubing
I have been using tubes for ten years. I fish northwest New Jersey and rarely see another person in a tube. Why more fisherman are not involved with this personal watercraft is something I just can't understand. Over the years I have purchased five different brands of tubes. The White River Tube is an all round great product, it has good storage, great stability, hours of comfort, and exceptional durability. A great value for the price.
I have gotten all my friends into float tubing, 2 years ago started a guide service. I just retired some of my older tubes and purchased 3 new White River Tubes for my upcoming season. Enjoy!

Great Float Tube
This float tube is a great value. I have another brand also, from the other big name mail order company, but this one is better in almost every category. First, it has three air tubes instead of two. It makes it very comfortable to lean back while on the water. Second, the fabric is much thicker and seems to be of better quality. And third, this open face tube has a bar that connects the front tubes together and makes the whole boat more stable. It even has an adjustment strap that connects from the seat to the bar to alter the way that you sit in the seat. This is a fantastic addition that I had never seen before I purchased this tube. My other one doesn’t have this feature and leaves you feeling like you are being pushed forward the whole time. I have been very satisfied with this tube and would highly recommend it.

First time tuber
I recieved this for my birthday this year as my boyfriend and I have taken up fishing and wanted to get out to where the fish are. This tube is very easy to put together and inflate. Due to our limited car storage space we underinflated it to get to the lake and filled it up before we got it into the water. Its easy to get in and out of with plenty of storage space for tackle. We pared down what we brought but were able to fit 3 4 X 10" tackle containers and a small fly box into one of the arm pouches. The other I used for the essentials: clippers, pliers, drinks (cupholder would be nice), sunblock, waterproof camera, small towel, snacks, wet naps, stringer, lip balm (as a girl this is truely essential). There was still room in the first pouch but until I get better with the tackle I have I will just have to slowly add on. The tube moved well thru the water and I had no problems other then tired legs from kicking. Thank god for the safety strap between the legs since it does feel like you are sliding into the water. I wish all the tubes had this. Very comfortable, the netting was helpful for changing lures and retying jigs. Its not too heavy even with all my tackle and extras in it so carrying it was a breeze. I didn't have too much trouble when the wind kicked up either. It does ride a bit low in the water but I did not get any water into the back of my waders and that was even as I was leaning back against the back of the tube. I would recommend this tube to others and the price was more than reasonable for the product. I am looking forward to many more days out on the lakes and reservoirs.

Lost Lake Float Tube
After purchasing my first Lost Lake Float Tube and having a great amount of fishing success and overall enjoyment, I decided to get a float tube for my wife. I thought I should get one of the more expensive models assuming that it would be even more comfortable and enjoyable for her. We each gave her tube a try and agreed that my 'budget' tube was much better than her 'luxury' tube. I have ordered a second Lost Lake tube. The 'Luxury' model will be available should a third person be joining us. The Lost lake tube is easy to inflate and comfortable and stable in the water. You are seated in the water however, so in colder climes, you may want to wear waders or a wet suit.
