Arizona Fly Fishing – Rest and Relaxation

5 Comments

My wife reminded me the other day that we have about 7 more weeks till our sweet, little girl enters this beautiful world. In my mind, it registered that I have about 6 more weekends to cram in any last minute fishing or hunting trips before she shows up. So, I headed north with a […]

Fly Fishing Arizona – A trickle of water

Fly fishing Arizona means that you take what you can get. Jake and I explored a trickle of a stream where surprisingly we found a few small rainbows living. There wasn’t a whole lot of real estate, but the fish were fairly aggressive, attacking our flies on the surface. It was amazing to see these […]

It was a hot morning to say the least, and after we had run a couple of errands earlier in the day, my friend, David, and I headed into a creek that runs through some lower elevation. The hike in was longer than we expected, but the ice-cold water at the bottom was very fishy […]
