New member and just getting started in the sport. I have a little bit of equipment I have built up in the last year or so. what would be a good place to go and learn for a beginner? I moved here a little over a year ago and have only fished a handful of waters. I was told of this site by a guy I met at the research park. are there any clubs or clinics for begiiners?

Quick Learner this is a great site to acquire knowledge. If you are looking for a club. There are 2 in the valley Arizona Flycasters on the west side and Desert Flycasters on the east side.

There are links on the main page.

Look into some of the outings the AZFAT Bass Club is offering. We have a fishing/campout planned for Willow Springs lake. You can fish for troots and bass. Check out the thread.

So this is where all you guys had gone!

I'm from Tucson, been there since 1976, born and raised in Morenci. I gave my flyrod to my daughter who is working in Montana so had to buy a new one. I was up in Hondah last week looking for Chief and/or Virgil to help me set it up but ran out of time not to mention it was a zoo with the festivities (30 yr anniversary -- sometimes I have trouble with prioities). Hope to get up there this fall as the same daughter will be interning in White River.

That is too bad that you didn't start fishing back in Idaho. It is fanatastic there on the South Fork of the Boise River and up in the Sawtooths. Especially during the Salmon Fly hatch and hopper season. I lived there fro 1992 to 1998. I had grown up in Phx always wanting to live in the mountains. Fortunately I moved to Boise in 1992 and was introduced to flyfishing. Now that I live in Flagstaff I still have that opportunity but the fish are no where as big and wild.

Hello, I'm Tim. I first started fishing about 4 years ago on vacation in Hawaii. We were staying at a friends house for 3 weeks and I got bored so I bought a $25 rig and proceeded to get skunked. At the time I lived in SD and bought a setup and learned to fish the surf and fell in love with it.

I moved here to N. Phoenix almost 2 years ago and realized I needed to change my game and learn how to catch bass. I spend time on AZBassZone and have learned a lot and made a few friends. I have some spots I like to fish but without a boat, I'm somewhat limited. So I'm looking to broaden my skills as well as my range.

I'm working on wrapping my first fly rod now and I'm hoping to get out and actually fish it in a few weeks when I get it done and get a reel etc for it. I'm looking forward to getting out there and getting my first Trout!
