AZ Bound - Fishing Hard Starts Again

Before I even talk about my trip to Arizona this week I need to fill everyone in on the premiere of the movie “Connect”. You may remember I headed to Bozeman, Montana to see the first showing of “Connect” on Friday. All I can say is that the movie is superb! As I’ve mentioned, this is the movie that has a segment from our tigerfishing trip to Tanzania last November. That part is incredible. It’s the grand finale and I promise you when I lift the giant tigerfish from the water it will blow your mind. But it’s not just my part that excited me. The entire movie is terrific! There’s a trout fishing segment in Japan, tarpon in Cuba, trout fishing in Yellowstone, pike in Alaska and striped bass in Maine to go along with Africa. And you don’t have to be an angler to enjoy it. The entire flick is extremely entertaining for all. The good news is that it will be available for sale on my website in early November and there’s even a good chance the movie will hit the big screen in a theater near you. Check the Confluence Films website for tour dates.

I’m presently on my way to Arizona to do a presentation for Desert Fly Casters on fly fishing in Baja. My presentation will take place on Wednesday night. If you’re in the area go to the Desert Fly Casters website for details. In the meantime, I will be fishing with my friends Steve Berry and Cinda Howard. Steve and Cinda have been showing me a good time fishing in Arizona for about 15 years now. They’re great friends and if you go back on my blog to October 2010 you can see what we got into last time. I honestly don’t know what they have planned but I’m sure it will include big bass or finicky grass carp (white Amur).

As always when I’m travelling my blog could post a day or so late. So just keep an eye and hope to see some cool fish. As for the big gaps between fishing reports the last couple weeks, that’s about to end. I am caught up on work and about to hit it hard again. Stay tuned!


  1. The nearest showing of the film by Boise id Ketchum, I will try and see it.

  2. I was also at the Bozeman premier. Very good show! The fly fishing specific films seem to get better each year. Glad to see Yellowstone included.
