White River Fly Shop Lost Lake Round Float Tube
Works For Me
I just bagged over 20 black bass yesterday in our spot. Before this, the boats would come by and pull bass right in front of me. Now I'm out in the river pulling fish out like the boats. I have used this 8 times already and love this tube. It's not for everyone and it's sometimes a constant work out...which is great for me. I bought this one because it's the cheapest one I could find. My next task is to figure out how to hook a camera to this thing so I can show others.

Father's Day Present
This float tube works great. They provided the right attachments to make it very easy to align the tube with outer cover & to blow up. I under inflated the tube on the first day because I just wasn't sure how much air to put in. However, with added air and a very firm float tube, all subsequent uses have been fantastic. The tube has 2 large pockets that provide plenty of storage for all of my gear. The mesh apron in front makes a stable working surface for changing out lures and for putting fish onto the stringer. The float tube is simple to maneuver in the water and is very light, making it easy to carry long distances. I want to say thanks to Newcastle West for this Father's Day present and overall, I give this product a 5 out of 5!!

Since purchasing the white river round tube float I have only gotten to use it once (due to it being too hot to get out and go fishing) and it performs very well. I have had four other tubes and other than the one I had custom made it is as good or better than the other three I bought. The only part I was sceptical of was all the other tubes had a truck inner tube, which were very durable. I don't know how sure I am that this inner tube will be able to hold up to some extreme fishing. Only time will tell. Other than that it is a good product.

I used this tube a couple of times to trout fish the Chattahoochee. For the most part, it has been reliable and a great value. The only downside is that it's made for avg sized folks or smaller. I am 6'4" 250 lbs and it is tight. I have since given it to my wife and will be purchasing a bigger model at BPS. The only reason for the 4 out of 5 rating is the size limit.
I would also reccomend you buy a 3-3.5ft paddle and tie it to the tube. Flippers are useless in a river unless you like falling down ;-)
