Camping has become and ever increasing pastime, as people look for new and innovative ways to enjoy being at one with nature.

Many boating enthusiasts remark how freeing a live lived on water can be, but the outright price of buying a boat is a luxury not everyone can afford.
The Shoal Tent has been invented in the hope of bringing the freedom of the water ways to the many.
The tent has been designed in a way not too dissimilar to the user-friendly tents we see on the market today.
It can easily accommodate individuals of up to 6″3, it can be folded down to a manageable size so that can be easily transported in the boot of your car, and at 75 lbs is relatively lightweight for what is essentially a pack-away mini-home.
The company says the tent is ideal for use “your favorite farm ponds, saltwater flat, spring creek, or Eddie on your favorite river.“. The obvious dangers of open water mean the tent cannot be used in the ocean.
Outdoorsy folk usually combine the adventure of camping with water-sports such as rafting or kayaking, this invention means the two can be mutually enjoyed.
The tent is made up of a simple inflatable dinghy design, similar to those used in regular water-sports, meaning those familiar with the workings will feel at home in the tent.
They will cost $1,499 and will be available to pre-order online
It is made of thick durable material, six inches thick and double stitched to ensure absolute safety, and the tent top easily detaches if needed.
Ethan Smith, founder of SmithFly has been producing products that aim to make enjoying the outdoors easier, and more fun since 2010.
This tent seems to be the perfect tool to get away from the stresses of modern life and is sure to be a hit with fishers and campers alike.
