Hi Hamdhingra,

I admire your guts in using a float tube ,on a river. A pontoon boat/fishing kayak is a better tool for fishing a river, safety wise.

The float tube is actually meant for stillwater fishing. Do consider using waders (breathable for warm water, and neoprene for cold water).
You can wear moisture wicking thermals under breathable waders, to keep warm.

Another safety aspect is to use a PFD seat, which fastens to your float tube and also keeps you slightly higher (above water).

Thanks for your email on mahseer lures for northern India.

Guru ji,

i think its safe only in placid Bhakhra, Pong and Ranjit Sagar. How about Uchhi Bassi? Now a days, the water is up and so are the new wire mesh crates.
And is worth buying? If yes, from where?

Regards and tight lines,

Harryxs.

Harry,
Hi, I am going to do this in Unchi Bassi - and you know the heavy flow there . Intend to anchor myself fron the left bank and float around the main flow and the backwaters. Besides the heavy amt of wire mesh we have some big monsters there (I would not be surprised if Goonj there was over 80-100 Kg's ) . My only fear is not of drowning or getting a severe ducking but of getting tandem hooked to the fish I play.Believe me - this plan of mine is gonna work and you will have some fine monsters which I will finally bring back to the left bank - conquered ,photographed and released.
Till now they had their way - lets get through to them
Cheers
Hamdhingra

Harry America is the place to buy it.Front open is less safe than the round one.I have both.You can try them.Once you are in the water into one of them - you will never be happy fishing from the shore/bank - and by God if you have a beer or two in you and then get in - You"ll be in "Paradise"

Ofcourse I will put a life jacket around you which that day in all the excitement I forgot !

Cheers
Hamdhingra

Just an add on - I think it is foolish to use plugs when in a float tube - Tandem hooked is going to be a pain - so it has to be spinners/spoons.
