How comfortable is fishing in a kayak?

I'm in the market of a boat. I'm considering either a smallish canoe or a kayak. (Something I can throw on the roof of my car by myself.) If I get a canoe I can take the kids out with me. On the other hand, I'm pretty sure they have zero interest in going so I'm also considering a kayak.

Keeping in mind that I'm getting into my mid 40's, and that I have a sedentary job so I'm a little heavier than I'd like, I'm wondering how practical it would be for someone like me to fly fish from a kayak?

I tried sitting in a kayak at a shop and it seems like a pain to get in and out of. It also seems like it would be almost impossible to remain completely dry in a kayak.
