I love to fly fish for carp. After a decade of interacting with these fish, I have developed an amazing passion for chasing them. They are not just "trash fish" to me. They are incredibly smart and have very unique behaviors which makes them an incredible challenge to land on a fly rod. Phoenix has one of the spookiest populations I have ever seen. It takes a great amount of skill to master them. As a guide, my goal is to reduce that learning curve for you. Instead of taking months to figure out what to do and how to do it, in a few hours I will have on presenting flies and hooking up with fish. I want to teach you how to think like a Carp. If you can master these fish, trout and other species will seem easy. I boast a very high success rate for hooking my clients up. Everyone ends up with an eat and a Carp tugging on the end of their line. Bottom line is that we help you skip levels. You will be overloaded with carp data and information... GUARANTEED. - Ryan

TROUT TRIPS - MOGOLLON RIM - PAYSON, AZ

Starting in 2022 I am now offering Trout Trips in the Tonto National Forest. I contract through LoWater Guide Service and all trip bookings through Derek Rivchin. Each trip is insured and permitted through Tonto National Forest.

Having grown up in Idaho, I have been fishing for trout for over 30 years. This isn't big river fly fishing though. It's Arizona Creekin'. Small water trout is super technical and can be incredibly fun. Arizona has some stunning and water ot fish. The Mogollon Rim near Payson, Arizona boasts over 10 different rivers and creeks filled with wild Brown, Rainbow, Brook and the very rare Gila Trout. If you are looking to check a Gila trout off your list we can put you on them! 

SKIP THE CROWDS!

WE HAVE MORE WATER, AND FISH!

LESS THAN 90 MINUTES FROM SEDONA!

CARPOOL OPTION AVAILABLE FROM PHOENIX.

WARNING! SOME FISH REQUIRE LONG HIKES!
