I have a Garmin Striker Plus 5 that I really like. It's inexpensive and doesn't have built-in maps but it can create and record accurate 1-foot depth contour maps while you're using it. This is handy for small lakes and ponds that aren't on other map chips. I believe it has enough memory for something like six million acres of recorded maps. Having GPS is great for marking and getting back to hot spots.

I also use it for ice fishing and on my float tubes. I find it invaluable and wouldn't be without it. I have found and caught good fish in areas I would not have expected them to be; fish I wouldn't have been casting for without the sonar.

When you're fly fishing, everything sticking up on the boat gets in the way, but I don't find the sonar to be troublesome or limiting.

I have found that a low mount on the line hand side of the tube keeps things out of the way pretty well...

I like my Garmin Striker CV 5 too...
