I love my tube. I have a Caddis Nevada Gold U shape. My wife has a round one and wants to get a U tube. We used to fly fish out of our canoe but tubing is better because I can go here and my wife can go over there. biggrin.gif

Wear good neoprene waders with long underwear and warm socks. Here in Alaska the water is cold all summer long. One suggestion is to buy flipper keepers.... a strap that attaches to your ankle and fins. It sucks to loose a fin out in the middle of the lake.

I have a dry bag that I keep items like food, drink, camera and toilet paper in. I attach a rope to it and float it behind my tube.

Another suggestion, bring sunblock with you. The reflection off the water is very strong.

Good luck and FLOAT ON!
