What does fly fishing mean to you? What about fly fishing offers you most satisfaction?
Fly fishing is the closest you can get to be even keel with nature. It’s rough to describe but it is a very spiritual sport that you practice for and you want to be automatic and be one with nature.
What does having AZ Fly Shop in the community mean to you? What do you like about AZ Fly Shop?
Chris of course! Haha To have a place for people to come together. As our world has continued to convert to online in meetings and shopping it is a gift to have a place that we can connect in person. Through the community created by AZ Fly Shop I was able to connect with the ladies from casting for recovery and it gave me the opportunity to help at the retreat this past summer.
Tell us your most memorable fly fishing story
Is there any advice you would share with the fly fishing community?

Is there anything else you would like to share with the community?
It can be intimidating to start fly fishing. The ladies from Casting for Recovery didn’t expect to love fly fishing, they wanted to share stories and be together. They all left with fly fishing set ups and a new passion for being on the water.
Be open minded and go with the flow.
