Thanks Bob! I'll give those flies a try. Being new to fly fishing I have a hard time understanding and remembering the names and shapes of the flies. Of course my wife says its my age.

Thanks again, Pat

Thanks Bob,

I had heard Earl Park was real good. I picked up a license last weekend for it, but spent most of my time over near Alpine. Jeez, what a pretty area.

My wife and I are gonna' wait until later in July and go back up and then hit Earl.

Thanks for help and advice today.

Thanks Bob,

Good points for me to think about. I'm a 55 year old rookie and appreciate the advice. Pat

Am looking forward to reading about local Arizona trips and other information.
