I came across this boat on a another discussion board where the yakangler (riverpirate) was a sponsored Ocean Kayak angler. Wanting to try a more hybrid style of boat while maintianing loyal to his sponsorship he decided to try the Old Town Pack Angler (both Ocean Kayak and Old Town are owned by Johnson Outdoors).
In his thread he had nothing but good things to say about this boat. It is easy to paddle with a double-sided paddle (kayak paddle) and had tons of storage room for gear and rods. He states that due to it's great stability he stands 99% of the time while in this boat and has actually since removed the seat.
Here is a bit of a product profile of the Old Town Pack Angler.
This canoe is crafted to meet the solo angler's demand for light, compact comfort. Made of tough, lightweight Royalex the Pack Angler is designed for solo portage and an easy lift on and off the car top. At 12 feet long, this canoe navigates the tightest waters and is well-suited for a double-bladed paddle. Add in all the angler features and-dawn 'til dusk-the Pack goes wherever the catch takes you.
