Topic - The 2023 Year in Fly Fishing Adventures
As a second-generation Arizona native, my fondest childhood memories are camping and fishing along Arizona water, and at the age of 7 I picked up fly rod and taught myself to fly fish.
As an adult, for the last 45 years, I’ve had the opportunity to fly fish around the world, and my heart has always come back to the fly-fishing community in Arizona. It’s allowed me to connect with a terrific group of people, and launch AZ Fly Shop.
My favorite place to fish is in Arizona waters, and I believe that Phoenix deserves to have a first-class fly shop. That’s why I decided to open AZ Fly Shop; to fuel the obsession of fly fishing in Arizona and to serve, and grow, the fly-fishing community here.
The fly casting class is open to all members, whether you are have never cast a fly rod or would like to improve your casting skills. There will be FFI certified fly casting instructors there to work with you. Please bring a 5 or 6 weight 9 for fly rod with floating line and an 0X or 3X
7 1/2 foot tapered leader. AFC will have fly rods and reels on hand for you to use If you do not have a 5 or 6 weight rod. For safety, bring a hat, sunglasses and water. The instructors will work with beginner fly casters as well as some of us that can use a FFI certified instructor’s guidance to improve our casting.
