I used a Cross Creek UL last year. I really like float tubing with a UL fly rod. It's the most fishing local action you can have and at any time of the day! Bluegills bite like crazy all day, you don't have to get a early start?

These new float tubes / pontoons have the "bladderless" technology. They don't lose any air at all! The Escape will hold 600 lbs. Mine comes with aluminum oars, but I like to kick around with my flip fins instead!

Only 21 lbs, but I keep mine inflated all the time and just toss on my roof rack. It only takes me 30 seconds to get the tube in the water.

Thanks, I tie all my own stuff, but it seems that a woolybugger (or a variation?) is all I use anymore!

I always look for those tiny feathers on the front of a saddle hackle hunk. If I wrap any fly with a tiny, thin hackle ..... the fly becomes alive and the fish just can't resist it!

I actually outfished a guy using a live worm chunk while I was using a no weight micro bugger! 10 to 1!! LOL Fly rods rule!
