White River Fly Shop® Lost Lake Open Front Float Tube
I took a trip this last week to a Sierra Mountain Lake that holds some very nice size Brook Trout. Took along my brand new White River Float Tube and had a blast. Going during the week left the lake to just my friend and I to fish. The pockets were ample for my fly boxes and other tackle. I am not fond of the color but it's not something to be concerned about. The top compartment for either another bladder or, in my case, a nit cap could be a little larger. The netting that shows 18 inches and crosses the front of you while sitting in the tube came in handy. Made it easy to see the length of the fish as well as helping to land it. All in all I am pleased with my purchase experince.

Don't buy this Product
Save your money on this bad product. The tube itself is OK BUT the main float tube bladder is JUNK. I have not had the tube very long and the badder has tore TWICE making the watercraft useless. Save your $$$ and get a quality float tube from a brand name vendor.

Good Boat for the Money
I bought this boat last year, have used it just 4 times but really do enjoy it. It has plenty of room for tackle, camera, snacks, water, etc.
It's advertised as having a built-in rod holder, but that's really just a couple of velcro straps that will hold the rod horizontally sort of across your lap. I found the rod tip dipped into the water with each kick, so I only use it for securing the rod when I change flies. I did purchase a separate rod holder that straps to the tube, and that works well. I've recently purchase an anchor and am looking into depth finders.
On my first two trips I found that I kept sliding down in the seat, almost to where I was lying on my back. It was very uncomfortable and awkward. I made a small modification by shortening the crotch strap and this has made all the difference. No more sliding down.
Being out on the lake, I see most other tubers have Outcast style boats that allow them to sit above the water. I don't know that this would be a huge advantage, unless I had to kick a long distance. I'm sure getting around in my tube requires more effort and I cover less water. Plus, if the water's cold, sitting above it is bound to keep you warmer.
As my first tube, this one is more than satisfactory. If I become more avid I may spend more $$ when this one wears out. Happy Tubing!

in-stock item. I kept sliding forward in the seat to the point where water went down the back of my chest waders. I am considering rigging a waist belt to the D rings in the back to keep the seat under me. Are there any recommendations to fix this problem?
I never had water go down the back of my waders but it sure felt like it was going to happen to me. So I now take a life jacket and use hockey tape to strap it down to the top of my seat. It gives me that extra lift so I don't have that feeling anymore. Hope that helps.
Is your apron designed for stabilizer bar? If so, all you need is some 3/4" schedule 80 tubing. Overall length for the brace is 22". I have not had any problems with sliding forward in the tube. I shove my butt as far back in the tube as possible. The only downside to this position is the edge of the seat tends to "bite" into your cheeks over long periods of time.
I run a small guide service where I take clients out in tubes. I have used the White River tube almost exclusively . Bladder replacement is needed in about six of my tubes. The nylon covers are still perfect. It would be logical to replace the bladders only.
only if you buy the combo pack. But save your money and just buy the tube, the dual action hand pump and the thruster fins. If you buy the combo like I did you get the duck feet fins and they are not really comfy so i also ended up buying the thruster fins too. I'm used to scuba fins. The combo is cheaper then buying each item, but if you dont mind the fins get the combo
