Fly Fishing: Know Your Valves

If you go buy a float tube or pontoon boat, be certain you buy a pump that matches the valve on your particular vessel. The are two common types of valves. The pump you may already own, may need an adaptor to fit the valve type of your new tube/’toon.

I have owned a K-Pump for several years and love the product. I always used it for the Buck’s Bags South Fork pontoon boat (Halkey Roberts Valve) I have owned, it seems forever. Recently, I picked up a Cumberland float tube, for an addition to my tube fleet. I was in the outdoors and went to inflate the tube and low and behold, the K-Pump did not fit the tube (Boston Valve). I rigged something up, because I had a hodge podge of adaptors and duct tape, and was able to inflate the tube, but it was a chore. When I got home, I reached the K-Pump staff and they explained they did in deed have an adaptor for my K-Pump so that I could easily inflate Halkey Roberts or Boston Valves. Great company!!! Do a little checking before your purchase/and or assume your K-Pump (or any pump) automatically  fits all valves.

Now a leaking valve is an entirely different subject all together.


Fly Fishing: K-Pump (The Best Pump)

I previously remarked about the quality of K-Pump’s. I am again touting their worth because of the quality of the product, but also because of their immediate customer service over a minor cosmetic concern. Check them out and trust me, an exceptional tool.Oregon based, they at a minimum have a ton of NW business.

A few years ago I was at a sportsmen’s expo in Portland, Or and a man was tucked away at one of those back corners reserved for emerging entrepreneurs. There was a man selling K-Pumps. I do believe it was the first time I had seen the name or the product. I bought one and have never regretted the purchase. It is small (there are several sizes  now) and does a great job inflating pontoon boats and rafts. The two handed barrel pumps are good too. But, I have come to rely on the K-Pump most of the time. The prices are still reasonable and it is a simple but powerful tool.
