Last April I embarked on a five day, 42 mile, wilderness canoe trip of central Arizona's Verde River (Childs to Horseshoe). This was a trip that I'd long dreamed of taking. Despite having called Arizona home for over 25 years, it wasn't until I moved away to Montana that this trip came to fruition. While there was some great paddling, hiking and camaraderie, this trip was all about wilderness fly fishing on a unique, desert freestone river.
Southwest Fly Fishing magazine gave me the opportunity to share this adventure in their current, March/April, issue. If you're not already a subscriber to this publication, you can find the current issue on major newsstands throughout the southwest.
