It finally hit me - the answer to all my small-river-drift-down-but-no-access-for-raft-and-too-windy-for-pontoon problems, as well as my want-to-go-out-further-but-can't-get-my-boat-in dilemmas!!! I'm in my fifties and just worked it out. D'Oh!

So I think that for me the Hobie Mirage Revolution might be the go, but tossing up between an Outback too. I like the idea that the revo is lightetr, more paddle friendly and faster, but for fly fishing I like the stability of the outback.

Any chance anybody has some thoughts on my choice?
