The Edisto is a decked kayak, plastic hull, with a fairly large cockpit. It has a very canoe-like, flat bottom, which makes handling in rivers and extremely shallow water relatively easy. On the other hand it does not lean turn at all. It does roll easy enough, surf well enough, and is stable enough to throw a cast net from. The large cockpit makes re-entry from deep water quite easy. It is not a very fast boat, but is faster than most sit on tops which are optimized for diving and fishing. If you want to fly fish on a narrow, fast flowing river from the same boat that you do a 10 mile open+rough water crossing in; then the Edisto may be your answer. If you want to do a lot of *different* kayak tricks, I'd strongly recommend the Edisto. For someone with a more specific role in mind, you might want to look elsewhere.
