ummmm....kayaks...

Hey all,

I'm thinking about buying a kayak, considering that the Farmington river is under a mile away. I have almost no experience (been rafting once, kayaked in a tandem once in a lake, kayaked on a sit-on-top on a lake..you get the idea) but I really want to keep my spending to a minimum (I'm only 15, state working age is 16) and still be able to use my kayak for white water. I'm told that they do olympic trials around here and someday (somewhere over the rainbow...) I'd like to try runs like that. That being said, what kind of kayak do I need and what stuff do I need to get with it? (by the way, being able to fly-fish from the kayak would be a really big bonus, and no, I'm not good at that either.) I also was wondering if anyone could point me in the direction of classes or a teacher or something, around here, that could help me not to kill myself on my first try. thanks, Drew
