Looking for opinions on the Native Ultimate 14.5. (Speed, versatility, etc)

I will kayak mostly Solo. But love the idea of being able to have somebody come with or even a dog in the future.

I like the idea of a dryer ride (photography)

Is it worth it ? Or should I get the 15?

Thanks in advance.

IMO, the newer FX version has the better hull design. Feels more stable and doesn't draft as much which are pluses for flats. It is a heavier boat, but it has a larger weight capacity. Two of my friends (both adult guys each over 200 lbs at the time) swamped a 14.5 fishing one day (clearly over the weight capacity) in somewhat choppy conditions. So, depending on who you plan on fishing with you need to consider that aspect.
