Phoenix Fly Fishing. Wait, Phoenix, Arizona?

When you think of fly fishing, you probably don’t think of Phoenix, Arizona. But Redington ambassador KC Badger doesn’t let the desert get him down, finding challenging angling for “trash” fish like carp in lots of his local water holes.

This third episode of the Find Your Water series is great, because across the country many, maybe most, anglers get their fix inside their city limits. These guys sure find a challenge, and a lot of fun, with the urban desert carp of Phoenix.
