I love to fly fish for carp. After fishing and observing these fish for over 10 years, I have developed an amazing passion for chasing them. They are not just "trash fish" in my book. They are incredibly smart and have very unique behaviors which makes them such a challenge to chase with 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. Master these fish and after that trout and other species will seem easy. I boast a very high success rate and most clients end up with a "Golden Bone" on the end of their line before they know it. We help you skip levels. You will be overloaded with carp data and information... GUARANTEED.
