Though I purchased a "Future Beach Trophy 126" kayak several years ago, it spent years at a time taking up space in my mom's garage when I lived in a small apartment. It hurt my ass and was a pain to take places on my car. Now I have my own garage to make a mess of and a vehicle that can transport the kayak without trying to lift it over my head. I've also since become a depraved, fly fishing addict or "passionate angler" as I like to put it. Stream trout are not enough when a good tug can be coaxed out of bass, panfish, pike and other warm water species.
