"sounds like a weird personal ad I apologize"

nothing to apologize for. I have a float tube that I bought back in the 70's with the intent to use it on a Rocky Mt high-lake pack trip. I recently "discovered" it in storage. I would like to use it around the Lehigh/Schuylkill county lakes, Leaser, Locust, Mauch Chunk, Tuscarora, etc. Anyone interested, contact me.
It's a Caddis float tube. I want to float "wet" using regular swim fins, not with the fins that came with it.
Never would dawn on me that a permit would be required for this. I see kids floating around with inner tubes all the time and that's all a float tube is, an inner tube with a cover and pockets. Only requirement should be a life vest. Well, 10 bucks is a mere bag of shells.

FYI, FRED, I'VE USED BOTH AND SWIM FINS DON'T WORK NEARLY AS WELL. THE CADDIS FINS ARE MORE EFFICIENT. THEY JUST LOOK WEIRD. AND IF YOU EVER WANDER INTO A SHALLOW AREA YOU'LL BE REALLY GLAD YOU HAVE ACTUAL SHOES ON. EW

Dear Frederick,

You can get Caddis brand fins for about $ 40.00 on line and even in many sporting goods stores like Dick's, or Gander, or Field and Stream and Cabelas.

They make a difference and they are made to fit over wading boots so your feet have some protection. I usually wear my regular wading shoes which are a size 13 and the Caddis fins fit under the foot. I mostly wear a pair of swim shorts in the boat, only if it it is cold water and cold air like Colorado do I bother with waders. A swim fin would need to be massive to stuff a size 13 wading shoe in it.

I've been considering maybe hitting Tuscarora Lake once the weather breaks a little. Let's see what the weather brings in the next couple weeks.

Regards,

Tim Murphy

Hey Tim you big old weird dude. I remember you sleeping in the back of your truck at the Jam about 5 years ago, for 48 hours straight. I was in awe.

Your request is odd. I am on board. Shoot me a message and we shall get after it my man.

Jeff
