First of all welcome and congrats on the tube! For a pump a double action hand pump will do justice or a foot pump! As for rod holders there is many out but making one yourself is fun and you can choose how you want it and stuff like that. For fins I've heard hot spot fins and force fins are great but personally I use diving fins from uss diver that work well and are cheap! And for waders I went to bass pro and got there breathable white river waders for 99.99 and use them in saltwater no complaints about them either! Good luck

Welcome to the board.

Best not to use foot pump. Have it, and hate it. Small dual action pump for stowing on board while on the water. Larger dual action for quick fill at the car.

If you have no budget, go for Force Fins. If you're on budget, adjustable flex fins (long body) designed for scuba divers and snorklers will be great.

For waders, breathable Frogg Toggs Hellbender. $99, and free shipping. Look around for sales for even cheaper. I got mine. Loving it, and will buying more in the future for colder days. Roomy, flexible, comfy, and affordable.

We are family here, so ask away. No question is absurd or small time. Every question has its merit, even though it sounds farfetched and odd at time..like most of mine. LOL

Fins that hurt your feet are no bargain! I found a pair of Force Fins for $40. You just have to look around. They are the best, hands down. Don't bother carrying a pump with you. Just get a 3' piece of tubing that fits into your boston valve. Mine is 3/4" OD. Top it off by mouth. Simple!

You can really get carried away with rod racks. I like to take 4 rods with me. Just a one-sided rack, costs about $25 to make.

Here are a couple I have made:
