If you fish rivers as I do, aren't you always interested in the most efficient way to do it? I am, and have recently found the most efficient way that I've ever found. My favorite river is in the wilderness and walking along it can be just like walking through the woods. That's probably because that's exactly what is happening. I'm walking through the woods to get to the next good stretch of river. Then I stumbled on the most efficient way that I've ever seen to fish wilderness rivers such as the one I like.
It called an inflatable boat. But not the kind of inflatable boat that you may be thinking of. The kinds I like are basically personal pontoon boats. There are different companies that make them, but personal pontoon boats are basically a seat mounted on top of a couple of inflatable pontoons. They are literally a personal boat! And on rivers that are difficult to walk along because of overgrown brush, these “personal boats" are the way to go.
In the past you may have only been able to cover 2-3 miles of river in a trip, with the aid of an inflatable pontoon boat, you can fish three times that amount of water. You'll be able to access areas of the river that you never thought possible. And you'll be able to fish these areas in a way you never thought possible. On the river I prefer to fish, there are a ton of fallen trees that can block an angler's path, especially in the spring. In a boat such as a canoe, traversing fallen tree's is a major pain in the butt. But with my personal pontoon, I simply carry it over any fallen trees. It can easily be picked up with two hands.
The fact that this boat is inflatable is amazingly convenient as well. It can be pulled out of my vehicle and inflated in a matter of minutes! It enables me to spend much more time actually fishing, whereas I used to spend half of my time walking to my fishing area's, rather fishing. Now I spend that time fishing, the way God intended.
It's also quite relaxing to float down your favorite river without a care in the world. And if you feel like stopping to fish an area, you simply stop, pull the boat onto the bank, . And fish the area. I wear my waders the entire time, just as I would if I were walking along the bank. It's a beautiful thing and not only a great and efficient way to fish a river, an inflatable pontoon boat is a wonderful way to enjoy nature as well. You'll be amazed at the amount of water that can be covered in a single fishing trip, and you'll agree that this is the most efficient way to fish a river. Give it a shot and see if you don't agree.
