Let’s go fishing!

AFC is changing its fishing outing strategy this year to increase fishing opportunities for all members.
 Typically, in years past, we have organized monthly outings focused on camping and fishing at various lakes around the state, however participation has been declining. We would like to offer alternative fishing opportunities for members who are unable or do not enjoy camping. We also believe a platform is needed for members to  better connect with each other. Therefore, we have devised an alternative approach which hopefully will provide more flexibility and increase fishing opportunities for the entire membership.
  • Special Fishing Events – Destination location events. Our fall San Juan trip is a classic example of one of these events. Our upcoming Wyoming trip in May is another example.

What are Special Fishing Events

These are destination location trips that typically will be out of state opportunities that require a bit more planning than our traditional club events. Destination trips offer outstanding fishing opportunities that we do not have in Arizona. Our fall San Juan trip and out Wyoming trip in May are examples
These trips may be a little more pricey than a weekend at Woods Canyon or Dead Horse, but the venues selected and our negotiation leverage with vendors should give us incredible fishing opportunities at affordable prices.  Some of the potential locations are Colorado, Alaska, Utah, Montana, Idaho, Oregon, Washington, Cabo San Lucas, Puerto Peñasco, as well as our beloved San Juan Fall trip.
An AFC trip leader will be responsible for coordinating room accommodation, fishing guides (if appropriate), travel coordination, food, and pre- and post-event meetings and gatherings.
