The first fishing trip in the NEXT by Old Town. Being very curious as to how the NEXT would handle fast rapids on a fishing trip we decided to test it out. We loaded down the solo canoes with camera gear, fly rods, and coolers for the hot day. At first we cautiously approached the shoals to ensure we didn't flip and get everything we had wet. The canoe was very stable, lightweight, and provides a large space to store ice chests, dry bags, and fishing rods. The NEXT will definitely be our "go to" boat on hot summer days. The stability of the canoe combined with its' incredibly featherlight weight allows for someone soloing to make an easy trip.
