    Cinda, read through your website and credentials and you sound like a very skilled fly fisherman. I know it is late notice but I am viditing my spn in Phoenix this next weekvand wondered if you had an open day on the 23,24,or 25 th? We could book a full day trip and have our own gear i could bring. Both of us are tall men at 6’5″ and 6’7″ respectively. So we have boots 13-14 size. I have not fished in Arizona yet but have in Colorado, Michigan, Missouri, Arkansas, and my home state of Kansas. I recently graduated from the Orvis School in Traverse City, Michigan, hosted by Dave Leonard at Orvis Streamside. My son is a novice fisherman but has great casting form and skill. I am a veterinarian and he is a resident in training surgeon there in Phoenix. Hope we can link up with you. My wife and i fly in Wed.night. Let me know. Matt.
