So it turns out that due to having a baby my finances for fishing have been severely cut by the Supreme Commander.
I have been trying to come up with novel ways of getting the stuff that I need. Or rather alternative solutions to the problems that I may have on the water. One of the main pieces of fishing gear that I was obsessively coveting needed was a float tube – it is by far the most expensive thing on my list. Now – what exactly does a float tube do ? Well, it gets you closer to the fish – it is like a disguise almost – you look like a giant duck to the fish so they do not get spooked. They are portable so you can carry them around and they are a cheap solution to buying an actual boat.
Anyway, it looks like there are no float tube manufacturers lining up to actually give me one so I have decided to look into alternatives that meet all the above criteria at a cheaper cost.
Ladies and Gents – I give you – the “Personal Environmental Reconoissance Vehicle”:
As you can see the PERV meets all my criteria:
- Blends in with natural wildlife (well it does in Scotland anyway) - it tries to emulate everything a fish might see in the water! (and then some)
- Air filled – so float-able!
- A handy retractable place to put my sandwiches!
- Somewhere to place my head in case of a snooze!
Fantastic – as you can see when you have a problem it is sometimes the simplest solution that is the one that will work. Looking forward to catching a toothy critter whilst straddling this baby? Damn right I am!
