Sportsmen of the 1880's hiked into secret fishing holes in the Adirondacks with "pack canoes".  A century later, an ultralight kayak is STILL the best way to get to your best fishing spots.  With more than 30,000 lakes in the United States off limits to motorboats, you're going to get there first in your fishing kayak.  Carry the kayak in one hand, your paddle and fishing rod in the other, and go find that secret fishing hole.  They won't hear your silent, zero-emissions fishing boat coming.
