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.

Wouldn't buy again
Not as easy to maneuver as I thought it would be. Would be ok if you don't have a boat. Is good for small or cramped areas. Good conversation piece

ok, but needs improvement
Tube is nice, works well has great advantages with the U tube design, I like it. I do NOT like the vinyl bladders, two of mine leak, the main head rest has failed completely, I use my tube a lot, I fish 3-4 times a week, I am constantly re-filling the bladders, it is easy, the dual action pump is great, but unnecessary as you can blow this up with your own mouth........even with the fancy valve system, my main bladder leaks from the valve, a litte silicone tape helped, but it still leaks a little....

I'm 6'4" and 315 lbs, and this tube worked just fine for me. I fished all day with it yesterday, it holds air well, and is stable. Even for a tall guy like me, the back rest was fine-I'm actually considering taking out the very top bladder, to use as storage. For the price, you can't beat it. The tube is very maneuverable and handles choppy water and wind well. I didn't have any issues with sliding forward out of it or anything. All in all, if you are looking to buy your first float tube, and don't have the cash to buy a more expensive one, than this is the perfect one to get.
