I'm planning to try out a float tube for some lake fishing this Fall, and hoping to find one more level of solitude that way Pretty sure that will be the next addiction that keeps me busy for another couple years 😂Appreciate the comment!I concur. Fly fishing can be therapeutic. I don't have a boat so my pontoon has to suffice. It gets me out onto lakes where I can enjoy the solitude. I enjoy bank fishing but I prefer that on streams rather than lakes. On streams I can walk on if someone starts crowding. I imagine most of the folks who own boats usually go out with more than one person on the boat when they go fishing. I have several very close friends but none of them are fishers. I guess if I had a boat I'd have a few more friends but the solitude is good for us loners.
