PHOENIX (Dec 21, 2009) – Hold the sleigh and reel-in your shopping list – the long-awaited and modernized “Arizona Fishin’ Holes” booklet from the knowledgeable folks at the Arizona Game and Fish Department is hot off the presses just in time for the holidays.
“I give my personal guarantee this is a must have for all Arizona anglers, or those who aspire to such a lofty outdoor pursuit,” said Rory Aikens, the department’s fishing report editor.
Although previous editions of this vaunted publication have been around for a few decades, this latest version is special, in a cyber sort of way.
“We have brought this wonderful fishing guide into the 21st century. We truly crafted it to be glove box, cell phone, laptop and GPS-unit friendly,” Aikens promised.
There are GPS coordinates for each lake, up-to-date resource telephone numbers, and even Internet addresses so you can easily get the latest fishing information, even as you travel to your favorite fishery.
What’s more, he said, the whole booklet was revamped so it is quicker and easier to use than ever before.
“We started off just to update it but truly went off the deep end and did a total remodeling job, while keeping all the friendly framework anglers have come to rely on for decades. It took twice as long as anticipated, but I am confident you will judge it well worth the extra effort,” Aikens said.
This new $8 fishing booklet has been shipped to all Arizona Game and Fish offices in the state, so be sure to stop by and get one for your favorite angler.
This easy-to-use fishing booklet will make a superb companion to the new Arizona Fishing guidebook the department is diligently working on in a collaborative effort with Arizona Highways Magazine.
“This upcoming, full-sized fishing guidebook will have all our best fishing tips, so it will be another great angling companion so you can get the most out of your fishing adventures. We plan to have this ultimate Arizona fishing guide published by this coming fall, so keep a tight line to catch the latest e-news,” Aikens advised.
