Float Tubing, Fly Fishing Topwater with a 3 Wt

Hey folks …. Jeff here with yet another simple, but very fun video. On this Sunday night I grabbed a 3 wt, float tube and a few terrestrials and headed to a small lake just a couple of minutes from home.

If you haven’t yet tried a float tube, there is no time like right now. There are literally hundreds of small lakes that are calling your name. With a float tube you will be able to access lakes/ponds that others can’t get their boat or even canoes/kayaks to or into!

The ease with which you can fish is amazing as a float tube will fit in the back of any car and thus there is no need for a big vehicle … and with the price of gas, that is a great bonus! For sure, the serenity of the lake and the ease with which you can get and maneuver a float tube will amaze you.

For a fly fisherman, the float tube allows you to keep your hands free to cast in any direction. Sure, there is a bit of a learning curve to float tubing …. but after a few spots you will get the hang of the kick fins and your legs will take over … leaving you time to fly fishing with independence!
