Thursday ,May 2nd, is an education class on how to plan and prepare for a fishing trip.

If you have little experience in this area, this class will provide you with some additional insight and confidence to "go-fish".

If you have a great deal of knowledge in this area please attend and share with your fellow club members.

The class will briefly talk about international and nation wide trips, but the primary subject will be Arizona fly fishing.

Hope to see you there.


Mmmmm, that WAS good.

The “Dutch-Oven-Cookout” was a complete success! Awesome food and plenty of it. Great company and very nice weather. If you missed this year's cookout prepare yourselves for next year's. It will occur in March and on a Saturday evening so that we can sit around Jack's outdoor fire.

If any of you fly fishers are interested in an intermountain trip in the fall please email me “”.

Some of the options are:

1. South of the Snake thru Irwin Valley, 50 miles from Twin Falls Idaho.

2. Big Hole from below Wise River, northwest of Dillon

3. The Missouri, out of Craig, Montana

4. Bitterroot, Clark Fork of the Missouri out of Hamilton Montana.
