The Floating Hide

We designed this hide more like a boat than the conventional floating hide that requires waders. Its design is compact and so may not suit everyone however with a little practice and patience this hide is quite the experience shooting at water level choosing your own background and angle. We are currently working on a mark 2 which will be larger and more comfortable.
