Great Fishing Yak

I bought this mainly for fly fishing because it seems that every time I find a nice fly fishing spot the wind keeps blowing me over where I want to fish. So now I can backpedal and hold my position while fly fishing without having to drop the fly rod to paddle backwards. Also, I have emphysema yet I can pedal this along at a nice clip while trolling a lake or pond at 2 to 3 mph with no problem. At 12 feet it is a big kayak and a mite on the heavy side but that all contributes to its excellent stability. I'm in my late 60's and not as agile as I use to be so I wanted a really stable kayak. If you are a young pup I'm sure you could fly fish standing up with no problem but I don't have the balance any more. However, I have tested its stability by standing up and its a rock solid fishing platform and wish I had better balance to take advantage of it. Mounting a fish finder or rod holder is a snap with its accessory rails. It is also a bit pricey but like the old saying goes, "you get what you pay for" and this kayak is definitely worth the price. You will never regret buying it. Old Town Canoe makes great products and over the years I've bought a couple canoes and this kayak and have been extremely happy with every purchase.

awesome kayak

I have used this kayak 3 times and so far (besides the weight) I can't find anything I don't like. This is a solid, well built kayak. It peddles great, and steers effortlessly

Stable and a dry kayak

It seemed like a lot of money for a kayak. But I think it's the best kayak for the dollar.
