Here's the same tube rigged for trout fishing. Note the two fly rods in holders on the right, the fish finder (sonar) on the left. All gear fits into the two pockets on the sides. The net and additional items go behind the seat. In this model you sit high and dry with your wadered legs wet only below the knees.

I also broke in a new fish finder - a Buddy 4200. This replaced an older model that I've used since the early 90's.

The fish was a five pounder.
I think Josh loves carp! It sounds to me like there may be a fly rod in his future.
He had reached the end of his stay and needed to head home. I abandoned the spot when another fisherman joined me - after we chatted for a bit about warmwater fishing opportunities. He indicated that he had a fly rod and was quite inquisitive at my use of this method for carp. Anyway, I headed over to the larger lake. After a while I got into some action.
One more fish was hooked but the hook popped out, making me think that I may have foul hooked him.
It was a relaxing few hours - a nice "brain broom" for a busy number of days. I left well before sundown and was home in time to return a couple of phone calls.
