Yeah, I understand the sticker shock - and the weight issue. But trust me, there is NO better fishing kayak than a Hobie Pro Angler. Period.
Now, having said that, I wouldn't take mine into a swift rocky river for fear of ruining the drive system. Nor would I try to launch it down a steep bank - because then I'd have to haul it back up.
If you're used to paddling, look into a paddle-style SOT. Several such are featured on the main page all the time.
But if you're serious about fishing...get a Prangler.
