I have had the good fortune to fly fish with many guides in several countries. Most were good at their trade and helped me learn the water and the techniques to catch more fish. However, none have been better than Aaron Carithers of Anasazi Anglers. In addition to being an expert of the San Juan he is a great person to spend time with on the river.

My experiences with Anasazi Angler have been nothing short of amazing. Aaron puts me on fish no matter what the conditions, and I’m talking about the big boys with shoulders. His knowledge, access to great stretches of river, and ease of demeanor make for exceptional experiences every time out – not to mention his great sense of humor. He is a must book anytime I’m west of the Rockies.
