 As an Eastern fly-fisher, it is easy to focus attention on the famous rivers of the west in Colorado, Wyoming and Montana and look past New Mexico.

And its easy to see why - given the warmth and variability of the state's climate.

But for those who know the waters, Northern New Mexico has fabulous opportunities to fish for trout. 

Joey Phillips knows his stuff, and has a deep lifelong knowledge of the waters. 

He's an outstanding guide, but most importantly an outright pleasure to fish with.
