The Extraordinary Thrust Step-In Fins by Classic Accessories will help get you to where the fish are. Great for use with inflatable fly fishing watercraft, like pontoon boats or float tubes. High-pitched Thrust Float Tube Fins keep you moving swiftly, and comfortably, through the water. They're designed to provide a potent swimming thrust, in a comparably compact package, specifically in order to make it easier to maneuver your float tube. They fit over all types of wader footwear thanks to a one-area-fits all design that remains comfortable and adjustable. A strap-lock design lets you very quickly fit or remove the fins, and churlish, solid rubber construction with heavy-duty straps will hold up to years of outdoor use.

Many anglers who wish to get started in fly fishing are intimidated. With so many choices of expensive rods, reels, lines, leaders and flies, it's difficult to know where to begin. And it doesn't help that a few of the so-called "experts" in the field write articles implying the sport is difficult to master. The truth is, to be a successful fly angler you don't need to know everything about everything. That's what sets this book apart from the many other fly fishing books available today. In these pages, veteran fly-fishing instructor Chris Hansen concentrates on teaching you the basics. For example, if you aren't sure what level fly angler you are, check out Hansen's "10 Ways to Tell If You're a Beginner." Want to learn how to fly cast? Read "12 Tips to Making the Perfect Cast." And if...

Few anglers have floated into the tight river waters and upon the rough lakes that Macauley “Mac” Lord has made a habit of fishing by himself on a small inflatable boat. “What people don’t understand, this blows my mind, you want to go fishing, you get up in the morning and want to go fish, your raft is of no value to you unless you have a buddy,” he said. You could row and anchor or pull up to get out and wade fish. But I’m in a one-person drift boat that I control with my fins. I can fish the whole river. The 60-year-old Lord’s passion for exploring rivers and lakes was launched decades ago when small inflatable pontoon boats first hit the market. “When I was a kid growing up in Kentucky I fished in this little inflatable boat,” he said. “I had to skull with one hand, and I’d fly cast with a popper in the other. “When I got in the OutCast in the U-boat with the Force Fins for the first time — that was in 1990 at a pond in Maine — I made like three kicks and all of a sudden it was like my whole life changed. I had an epiphany, my whole life opened in front of me and I thought: This was the boat I was always supposed to be in. ”. Because of his passion for the float tube system, Lord has become a self-proclaimed evangelist for the unique sport, the... More than 20 years ago he helped form the L. L. Bean Outdoor Discovery School’s fly-casting program in Freeport, Maine. He’s written several books and articles on fly fishing as well as received the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Federation of Fly Fishers. In July he was visiting a Montana friend and float-fishing the North Fork of the Flathead River, along with other waters, prior to attending the Fly Fishing Federation’s annual fair in Livingston, Mont. Even on the low waters of that northwest Montana river, Lord had no problem navigating small rapids, paddling past huge log jams and trolling through deep emerald pools while fishing for westslope cutthroat trout. “Once I started doing (flat water) I realized I could float almost any river in the world if I want to,” Lord said following his float trip. “Obviously not the rivers people would seek out for whitewater thrills, but the rivers that, you know, fishing guides in Montana would want to float, like the Yellowstone, the Missouri, the Madison. This year Lord’s experience with the sport of float tube fishing kicked up a notch when Dave Scadden Paddle Sports in Utah unveiled its latest lightweight pontoon boat, the Air Craft. The boat weighs in at a scant 3. 6 pounds, making it the most portable float tube currently on the market. “I can float just about anything you dare drop into,” said Scadden, who started using float tubes designed for lakes while fishing rivers in the 1980s. Those first tubes, which looked more like actual tire innertubes, were “great as long as you... He launched a line of pontoon float tubes in 1986. Now he makes more than 60 models of boats and ships them worldwide. The light boats are rated to handle 700 pounds. Lord has used his Idaho-made OutCast Fat Cat float tube, which weighs in at 12 pounds, to haul camping gear for solo float trips on rivers like the South Fork of the Snake River. He’s used the Air Craft on day trips below Hauser Dam on the Missouri River in Montana. “In my boat I launch at the dam with my backpack on board,” he explained of floating below Hauser. “I float down to Beaver Creek and walk back up on the trail with all of my gear. Because he has to hire somebody with a power boat. You know how they fish it: They motor up to the cable below the dam, they drift down using indicators, then they motor back up. And they have to launch way, way down. The other gear necessary for such float tubing is a pair of chest waders, swim fins and on rougher waters a lifejacket. Lord said he has gotten his basic gear down to less than 20 pounds. When he goes on a multi-day trip he only carries about 40 pounds of camping gear, clothing and food on his boat, although he’s fished with more weight on the back when his 80-pound labrador retriever, Moses, has joined him.
