Arizona Wildlife Federation BOW Deluxe 2012

Down by the riverside...

Blue skies and sunshine take the chill off an early Arizona morning. Phoenix Fly Casting instructors teamed up with volunteers from Arizona Flycasters Club and our friend Bill Larson from Arizona Game and Fish to introduce BOW participants to the sport of fly fishing.

On the bank of the Salt River new anglers learned equipment setup, quick knots, basic casts, line management, fly selection and tips for enticing fish in moving water. Click for full size view.

The fish managed to elude us, but it was easy to catch the good time vibes of camaraderie and the exhilaration of having fun outdoors.
