Default Neubie for Kayak purchase

Hope I can get some advice on what kayak to buy.I fish big and small streams in southwestern Ontario for Stealhead,smallest stream would be around 8' wide,I use a floatrod and stream walk with breathable waders thought this would be a great combo I'm 44 and the hikings not that much fun anymore.Height 6'3 weight 225lbs
Thx

I'm 42 and a former football player with an aging football player's body. I'm 5'10 and 245 and fit in my Old Town Loon just fine. A few years ago I traded some firearm reloading equipment for it used. It suits me. I'm no expert but I would look at one with a decent sized cockpit opening and not much over 12 feet. Old Town actually makes one advertised as a fishing kayak. Find a used one...you can get one in good shape for less than half the price of a new one. I just paid $200 for my daughter's Zydeco Dagger.
