Hi guys,

My name is Bob, I’m 43 years old and I live in The Netherlands (one of the smaller countries in Europe. Think Amsterdam, cheese, windmills, tulips and clogs and stuff).

I’ve been fishing for as far as I can remember, but I bought my first float tube in the late 90’s and I’ve been hooked ever since. Most of what I do these days is lure casting for pike and vertical jigging/drop shotting for perch and zander, the last being the European equivalent of the walleye. I started fly fishing just recently and I look forward to adding trout to my list of target species.

My first impression tells me that the majority of members here is from the U.S. so on destination related topics the cat might cut my tongue. Still I am happy to learn new things or just have fun in the wonderful world of (float tube) fishing.

Thank you for your hospitality!

parasite888 welcome to the Float Tube Fishing Forum we are so happy you found us, and I am sure we will all be looking forward to your reports. Yes a large majority are from the US but there are others and I am sure in time your area could grow.
Please don't be shy ask question and post pictures when you can. Who knows maybe in the near future we might make a trip to your neck of the woods, you can show us the ropes out there. Again welcome and keep on floating.

Welcome parasite888!
Most of us are from USA for sure. It's great to have some Dutch representation here! I hope to see some reports and pics from the Netherlands.

Hup Holland!!

Touching bases with like-minded people has never been easier.

Here are some pictures from today’s short float tube session. A couple of midsize perch on soft plastics, mostly the Bubbling Shad by Reins. It seems to do the job every time. The Boga Grip look alike lip gripper from SPRO was a bonus. As you can see it has seen better days and it just wasn’t meant to rust in peace.

Thanks for the pics and congratz on getting on the water. Those perch look very similar to our SandBass in SoCal.

Thanks Jerdon

I googled the sandbass and agree that the European perch has many resemblances with it. It is however a saltwater specie, while the perch lives in freshwater only. I personally find the yellow perch (Northern US and Canada) being its closest relative.

Those were great pictures, thanks for sharing with us, keep up the great work. I think I will need to make sure some of these pictures end up in our magazine Thumbs Up
