I'm moving to central Oregon, where there are many opportunities for stillwater flyfishing from a watercraft of some sort. I have a tube but don't really like it much, so am considering my options...canoe, kayak, pontoon boat..? I'd like something stable and reasonably portable - I don't see myself packing it far but I don't want to be restricted to finding a boat ramp just to get into the water.

What are the pro's and con's of canoes, 'yaks and 'toons?

What's the best option for a rookie?

Many thanks for all input.
