Float tube (belly boat)
In Ängebytjärnet is it allowed to use a float tube under the whole season, with open water. Float tube fishers must show consideration to fishers on land, and fisher on land has always precedence in front of fishers in a float tube. Fishers with float tube shall keep distance to fishers on land, so they do not prevent each other.
Our definition is that it will be shaped as a “traditional float tube” and that you paddle with your feet. If the float tube is carried out with a weir, then it is considered as a boat and is not allowed. Private boats are also not allowed in the area.
