I'm shopping canoes, more or less, right now. I decided last fall I wanted one, and I'll probably take the summer to outfit it for fall or next year. I'm going to start seriously looking this month. I think I want something in the 12-14' range, with a good beam. This is going to be for isolated ponds I can't get the boat into. A fellow fly fisherman in Louisiana put this awesome package together (hope you don't mind me using this here, SL!) and it's pretty much what I want to accomplish:'
