Wading Caddy on flats...

Hi gang,

Perhaps some of you can suggest a few ideas.

I love "do-it-yourself" wadefishing for bones and other flats species but when searching out distant flats, I often find myself overburdened with gear...ie)water bottles, camera bag, fanny tackle pack and occassionally an extra 4pc rod in a tube slung over my back. Not only is all this stuff cumbersome, it also takes a toll on me physicially as well as hindering my ability to freely move about.

At times I just wished I had an air mattress or something in tow with all my gear on it. I figure I could have a stone with a short rope for an anchor and drop it off here and there.

Have any of you fine folks ever done this?...what did you use? I'm thinking as previously mentioned...an air mattress, an innertube, an inflatable pool chair (be nice to take a load off once in awhile) or even a childs inflatable dingy.

I'm off to the Mayan Riviera for two weeks in December and plan on fishing the Boca Paila bridge flats a few times. It's quite a long walk out there and it sure would be nice to have 10wt rigged and ready for Permit in addition to my 7wt for bones.

Thanks and best regards,

Hank
