I have a Sea Eagle 420X Explorer kayak. It's great for floating a river (even fast ones) but not so good for fly fishing because the seats put you so low that it's difficult to cast. There's not a lot of room for storing long fly rods either. HOWEVER, the great thing about Sea Eagle is that you can buy their product and if you don't like it you can return it within 180 days of purchase. You can essentially "borrow" one of their crafts and return it if it doesn't fit your style.

Here is mine with the seat that is very comfortable. They also make a two person with same seat. The larger you go the less portable. I also mounted a rod holder and fish finder.

I have a couple of Jackson sit on top Kayaks. I only fly fish and have no issues casting from the sitting position. I have also considered some type of inflatable boat but the ones I see on the lakes I fish seem to be trolling or anchored and I assume that's because of issues with the wind.

I have a 10' inflatable pontoon boat. Only weighs 50 lbs and sets up in minutes. I have floated shallow water rivers where I hung up on rocks and snags and never had a leak. The Kevlar material on the pontoons is nearly indestructible. Very stable craft and easy to row. There are many makes on the market and prices very.

I want to thank each of you for your suggestions and photos. I'm going to ask my husband to take a look at your feedback. And we will hopefully move forward with this decision. I'll keep you posted. Thanks again!!!
