The only drawback of this canoe is that you may neglect your job and family once you’ve purchased one. Retailing at $1,019, this royalex-sided craft is astonishingly light weight at 33 lbs. Couple that with 32” width, and the Pack Angler can go just about anywhere, needing only 4 inches of water to float through. This and its close cousin, the Old Town Pack Canoe, have earned a reputation for difficult tracking, but a kayak paddle and a little practice make that complaint mute.
Rating: This is perhaps the finest small fishing canoe out there. You Pay $150 more than the Pack Canoe, but the additions are well worth it: a lowered seat with a back rest, a mounted rod holder, and a removable work deck that is handy for storing fishing equipment. Thanks to the light-weight royalex construction, you should be able to carry this canoe well past the age of cashing in the IRA.
