It is to ice fishing what the backpacking tent camper is to the Winnebago. It is, of course, the collapsible tent-like—often called "pop-up"—angling shelter. These styles are constructed of lightweight fabric with a collapsible supporting frame. Many models stow in their own attached sled. Many have integral seating. There are models for the solo angler, for duos, even models that could accommodate 4-6 anglers. Photo Illustration
