Want to fish but don't have a boat ? Jump onto a large tube and laze in the lake or river , either still-fishing or moving with the current or breeze.
OR BUILD A LIGHT-WEIGHT ( easy to move and store ) RAFT.
I have tractor tubes that inflate between 4 1/2 and 6 feet in diameter that will do it all , including being towed behind a boat, smowmobile, or ATV . Or just slide down a snow-covered hill .
These have quick deflate valves for when you're done for the season , are very heavy duty rubber ( NOT PLASTIC ) and don't leak.
Priced $50 to 75 depending on the size you want.
I ALSO have some about 3 ft in diameter , also heavy duty rubber, for $30 to 35.
