Re: Where to fly fish near Phonix?

Re: Couple Hours in Utah

Had a great trip to Utah and I think I'm obligated to throw up a small TR since you guys were so helpful.

We left Bozeman late in the day and made it to a rest stop just short of Salt Lake before...

Re: Snakes on my Brain

I think the original OP will adapt pretty quickly. When I first moved West I was pretty sketched out about fishing in areas with rattle snakes. Where I grew up you can belly crawl through the woods...

Re: Couple Hours in Utah

It's on my bucket list to hit the Bighorn in February or March but can't justify a trip during peak tourist season. Fortunately we are blessed with a lot of water that provides solitude during the...

Re: Couple Hours in Utah

Awesome guys. Much appreciated. I think we will hit the Lower Provo since I'm short on time. As far as crowds I'll just pretend I'm on the Upper Madison and that its last week of June. People tend...

I'm running down to Capital Reef National Park this weekend from Bozeman and I've never wetted a line in Utah so figure I have to stop somewhere for a couple hours. I don't have time to...

Re: Flycraft ? Anyone see this ?

They are pretty tippy and you need communication between the guy in the bow and the rower when he is standing up. That being said for specific bodies of water they are pretty awesome.

Re: Clutch Rods.......

Re: Caye Caulker Belize??

I think I'm going to pull the trigger on Caulker as what I've read looks pretty cool. If I were going solo I would just go back to Punta Gorda as I love that area. However, Permit fishing isn't...

Re: Fishing opportunities in and or outside of phoniex

Look at the Salt River to the East of Phoenix. We caught small mouth out of there and chased some pretty large carp as well. It's also stocked with trout at certain times of the year but I think...
