Well my family went up to Arizona for Thanksgiving break, and my dad said, "find something to do cause you know the girls are gonna shop one day." so my immediate response is, lets fish!
We went to Oak Creek in Sedona, man it was freezing! The guide had to teach my dad a little bit at first so standing around I got cold, FAST! We used a 5wt with a coyote clouser, and a 4wt with a nymph rig.
It was two miles of hiking, through the waters, and it wasn't til our last half mile stretch did we get any fish!
He told me most people who come in saying "they taught themselves" need a lot more practice than they think, but he said i was golden from the beginning, so thank you all for all the tips on that!
I asked a lot of questions and feel like the guide taught me a lot on this trip! I'm so glad I got the chance to take this trip, would've been nice if i got a wild trout just to see the real color of the trout, I'm happy nonetheless!
And here is a thanks to my pops!
Never really fished other than with a guide throwing the bait out for us, so this was a real experience for him!

Oh, i forgot to mention! my pops got my Hanukkah present early. A ZeroGravity saltwater 8wt rod! We got it for 40% off because of black friday, and because we had our guided trip with the resaler, The Hook Up (defiantly got a few shirts and hats :P ) so we got it for right under $400!
