I fished with Derek a few weeks ago and had a blast. I did the walking canal carp fishing in Phoenix and it was very entertaining trying to get my cast in the right spot to get them to eat. If I am in the area again I would 100% do it again. 10/10

Great day out on the flats! Derek is very professional, knowledgeable, and hard working and got us onto the carp. Saw tons of fish, birds, burros, and all that sonoran scenery.
This was our first time fishing in Arizona and our first time targeting carp. Stalking the flats by poling skiff is a great way to chase these fish! 10 out of 10 will be going again.

I went with Hugo who was my guide and he put me on the targeted fish species: Gila Trout. He knew which flies to use and which techniques worked best on catching these fish. Hugo said that usually clients catch 3 Gila Trout but I caught 9 before it got too crowded. So that shows that listening to the guide works!

I always use a guide when I travel around the country. I must say Derek was one of the best that I've worked with! I've always wanted to catch carp on a fly. Derek put me on fish quickly and I landed some beautiful and large carp. Derek was very professional. I've been fly fishing for a long time but needed to make some adjustments to catch these fish. Derek provided just the right amount of advice and successfully corrected my backcast and hook set. I highly recommend Derek. If you visit AZ and want to get some time on the water you must give Derek a call!

It was my first time fishing out canals and had a great time. Grass Carp are fun and good sized. Derek was an awesome guide and I look forward to fishing with him again.

Derek was a great guide. Very knowledgeable about the local fisheries. Good communication is a must for me when hiring a guide and Derek was above and beyond others I've hired before. Very cool and unique fishing, great late winter get away to Phoenix and I'll be back. Super cool logo too

I had thought of myself as a competent fly fisherman until I had a few solo sessions with Arizona canal carp. I was frustrated in the extreme and sought professional help! Derek saved my ego with two excellent trips. Not only did he put me on feeding fish but he coached my moves to actually net a beauty after I had missed many takes. I lookfoward to my next outing with him.

Derek is a very knowledgeable guide. We had a great day on the canals sight fishing for grass carp. I will definitely give Lo Water Guide a shout out whenever I am in the PHX area! Thanks for the enjoyable afternoon chasing carp!!
