    Thanks, next trip report might be in a few weeks. Hoping to get south of here a bit.

    Paul-- what was your pack weight.. Im looking to get into packing tubes and gear in and am worried that my weight is going to get up there..

    We both figured our packs were probably close to 50 pounds I'm not going to lie, that much weight in a pack sucks and was a real good reminder of the old days and why we go much lighter now. But fishing from the tube could not be beat. To that thought, tube is good for going into one lake and staying for a few days, and best if the lake can't be effectively fished from shore. If I were to do this lake again it would have to be a 4 day trip to make the effort of getting the tube in more worth it. We were both pretty beat up after the hike out and Muse had back to back tripped with his 45 miles in Escalante then drove up here to do this...made for a long week off of work for him.

    Any recommended tubes or waders?

    Hey thanks for the report, Paul! I'm trying to get some time in September to do some fishing, perhaps up in Idaho.
    Now that I have my basic Tenkara set up, I've been looking at what is available in the area of waders and tubes. I am still in the information gathering phase. If AHE were to offer fairly lightweight versions of either of these products through your Tenkara website, I think you would get some bites.

    dblhmmck,
    Float Tube - I would look at the Creek Company float tube. Fins and tube are right around 6lbs. It is the lightest I have found and it is easy to get in and out of. The fins pack flat and are plastic instead of rubber. (That is the tube I packed in.)

    Waders - I think the Dan Bailey Barebones waders are light and strong enough to cover what you need. For the boots I would just get a pair of neoprene socks and put shoe goo on the bottom of them rather than pack in a pair of boots. It is cheaper and lighter. (I packed in William Joseph Drynamic waders and Chota neo boots because that is what was in my truck at the time.)

    Hope this gives you some info to get started...

    The ODC 420 is a better boat because it has an inflatable seat. It is made to rival the fat cat or super fat cat which is a very popular boat from Outcast. They also offer more storage but it is not really necessary for packing in to the backcountry because you will not be taking an ice chest, or will you???

    Since we are totally side tracked for this thread my preferred float tube is a North Fork Outdoors Outlaw Escape... It is a nice small boat that can float class III water if you are so inclined. I attached a pic of mine loaded and ready to go to work.

    If you would like more info shoot me a PM...
