I've done a lot of canoe and Kayaking and have fished out of both.But it has been a long time since I was in the market to buy one.
I still have a very old 16 ft.Kevlar wide U hull double canoe but it is shot out,gunnels are gone and so is the cane.Also fishing alone in it is a chore.If I'm in the stern the rig looks like a huge slip bobber given how the bow comes out of the water.Any wind at all and I'm in for a fight .
My retirement toy will be the best light Kevlar solo canoe or fishing kayak i can get . I'm a "big" ( read that over weight) 6 foot 230 lb fella.I could go with a foot steering rudder set up. Light is one of my big needs.Shoulder shot up by the NVA back in WW Vietnam, Use to be able to muscle up heaver car tops but no longer want to even try.I fly fish and bait and spin cast .
Came across this site while surfing around trying to get re oriented to the sport. Hope some one can make some suggestions foe me to look into .Thanks for any suggestions
