It was a gorgeous afternoon to learn something about fishing. Jason got us casting with some swim bait Hook up lake pleasant hopes of luring some large mouth or stripers. Jason explained that water level
Hook up lake pleasant not normal for this time of year had disrupted the typical fishing patterns. We also several other fishing methods, ultimately feeding some little stripers with some anchovies.
In other words, no big fish. Still, it was a fabulous day. Jason was very knowledgeable and easy to talk to. We enjoyed being on the water itself, Hook up lake pleasant the unique views, and learning more about Lake Pleasant's creation, its aquatic life, birds, etc.
I just spent 2 terrific days fishing with The HookUp Outfitters. Since I am a fairly experienced Hook up lake pleasant fisherman, but had never fly fished for bass, I thought I would give this a try. Although the stripers were not to be enticed Hook up lake the fly that day, Dale and I had a great time searching and hunting for fish.
At the end of the day we had hooked and landed a fair number of largemouth and white bass. What was amazing for me on this trip was knowledge I gained from Dale, and
Hook up lake pleasant comraderie we shared on the water. Exactly what every sportsman looks for in a guided trip: Mike explained the type of stream we would be in, what Hook up lake pleasant expect, and more importantly, what not to As an experienced trout fisherman, I can only say that Mike exceeded my every expectation as a guide, just as Dale had done the day before.
We had a Hook up lake pleasant day on the water, hooked and released an unbelievable number of fish both rainbows and brownsand missed more strikes and Hook up lake pleasant than I hooked.

For me, after 30 years of flyfishing many of the Blue Ribbon streams and rivers in the US with numerous guide services, you want to come off the water Hook up lake pleasant the end of the day with some new knowledge and having made a new friend.
These 2 guides and the HookUp Outfitters are among the very best Hook up lake pleasant I've come across and I've fished with some of the premier guides from some the industry's best. I can't say enough good things about these folks.
Our guide Mike McFarland found a great spot and our group landed quite a few large strikers. The time passed before you knew it. My wife and I visited Sedona and wanted to learn fly fishing and actually go fishing while we were there.
I contacted The Hook up and we were booked. Our Hook up lake pleasant Dale, contacted us and picked us up at the resort. He came prepared with Hook up lake pleasant in our specific sizeswater and even a pair of socks for my wife. He took us to an area on Oak Creek where the water was shallow and home to a flat piece of concrete for sure footing.
As beginners we sure appreciated it. From this point on, Dale proved to be not only a master fisherman, but a man of unmatched patience. Over the next hour and a half or so,
Hook up lake pleasant learned all of the basics of fly fishing from different flies to false casting and roll casting.
This guy was unbelievable! Hook up lake pleasant left the safety of the concrete slab and headed upstream. Dale had already taken care of paying for parking before he picked us up so after a short walk, we were back in the stream. After a short history of the German Brown Trout and the farm stocked Rainbow Trout, we started to fish. We caught numerous fish. Dale was like an excited cheerleader cheering and joking with each fish.
I knew that fly fishing was going to be fun but I
Hook up lake pleasant no idea we would have such a great guide and incredible experience. We spent five hours in a beautiful mountain stream and have a memory of Arizona that we will never forget. Thanks to The Hook up and Dale We received a confirmation call from our guide Larry night before our trip, and even though we arrived early the next Hook up lake pleasant, Larry was already setup and waiting for us.
He had a great sense of humor and was very attentive, adjusting reels for our left-handed fishers, making sure our bait was fresh, and had a net and new pole waiting the minute we reeled in a catch so we could get back to fishing while he unhooked and stored the bass. Needless to say, it's been hard going Hook up lake pleasant to having to untangle my Hook up lake pleasant line.
