Ok here is the big question. I am looking into purchasing a small craft just for one person to go flyfishing. It needs to be portable enough to be carried small distances to the water by one person and has to be hard shelled. Tried inflatable some time back and the places I go are too rough for that.
Craft would be used for small lakes as well as some narrow streams. Waters are small enough to forgo electric propulsion(I also can use some exercise from time to time).

Right now I'm bouncing back and fourth between kayak and canoe but I'm open to any suggestions.
Which one is more stable? I have boating experience but not with any of the above.
