& when my girly shakes her hips, she sure gets funky!

OK all Beastie Boys aside, I'm in Denver, CO and looking to get in to a folding kayak. I have a reservoir nearby and it would be great to paddle around in and fish from.

Have you browsed the "What kayak for me?" section of this site? There's a huge amount of material there. It sounds, to me, like you're a good candidate for Folbot or Pakboats.

I want something that is expedition worthy and somewhat quick to assemble/disassemble, Klepper maybe?

Klepper, Long Haul, Folbot, Pakboat... they have all been taken on expeditions and earned praise for their performance thereupon. The latter two are at least as quick to assemble as Klepper. This has all been gone over many times in the section I mentioned.

It is either great to paddle in, or to fish from. The better is fishing platform, the slower is paddling (and less efficient because of too big cockpit and too loose contact with the boat). Chris is right, though - this belongs to "What boat for me".
