Sign up to be notified Fishing Buddies Meet-ups

AZFISHBOOK-box-250-fishbook1Periodically Fishing Buddies organizes weekly meet-up at various venues.

Current Meet-up

Weekly Casting Practice Meet-up
Wednesdays, though-out the summer
(open to the public)

The time in April has been 10:30, however this schedule will change as summer heat move in on us.

We meet on the north side of the lake.  Typically has been 4 to 6 people, but hopefully this will expand.  So come on out and refine you casting skills.  If you are a beginner or old pro just want to keep you skills tuned come on out.  Member of AFC, interested in learning Fly Fishing or just want a test drive, come on out.

In addition other social meet-up events may be scheduled.  If you are interested in being notified via email fill out the form below and I will send reminders for time, place and date (if could be a moving target over the summer, check event schedule before attending).

The Rondoni Rod and it’s magic.


Wally and I went fishing up to silver creek Tuesday and Thursday and a I used the camo rod I won.  I caught about 8 nice rainbows, mostly on dry flies.  They put up quite a fight, testing the rod:) I caught the most on a ~size 12 foam rubber legs ant.

Soul River Runs wild

Support Chad Brown and Soul River Runs Wild

“Veterans and inner-city youth share similar troubles. But they also have one important thing in common: the healing power of wild rivers. Getting outdoors onto protected, public lands inspires hope in both groups. It inspires hope in all of us. Let’s conserve our lands and our waters for generations of today and tomorrow.” – Chad Brown
