Myself and God have been tubing for a good 15 years, its hard to find a better way to fish a river, you'll catch em under your feet. A good tube will set you back a few bob, but worth the cash.

Rory have you tubed any of those lakes that you see which are totally reed fringed and too deep to wade?? and if so what kind of results have you had?? i've always had it in my head that pike in these lakes would completetly whack your baits out of it due to the lack of fishing they would get.

Float tubing is a class way to fish, I'd reccommend anyone to try it out. As discussed, they range from price from $50 dollars (Creek Company have 1 at this price at the min and is a very good one) to 300 depending what you are looking for. Do a bit of research on the different types whether it's U shaped or a round one. I've got both but just use the U shaped one as it's easier to get in and out off. If still unsure, I'd say go to a shop that sells them and ask loads of questions. Make to get a life jacket and get a good pair of flippers as well (I use the FishTec one's), sit back and enjoy the craic!!!

Just want to know whether breathable chest waders are tough enough for use with a float tube. I am particularly thinking about chafing, rubbing, etc.What's you opinion about this?

Sure they are, at least the best ones are, but breathables will not last as long as neoprenes, nor be as repairable when approaching the end of their service life.

I find 5mm neoprenes to be the most useful overall. They can be used in Dec-Feb with fleece. They are ideal the rest of the year with ordinary clothing under.

The benefits of breathables are greatest while fishing middle of day between Jun and Aug. They are a more comfortable option then. Breathables can be used with fleece spring and autumn, but neoprene reduces the dressing and undressing prior and after fishing.

Wear is definitely greater walking around with them on and minimised sitting and finning while tubing.
