Sandstone Anglers, Inc. will be offering a fly fish/golf package based in Aztec. The fishing is of course on the San Juan River and the golf is at the famous Pinon Hill Golf Course in Farmington.

Package # 1 includes three nights lodging at the Step Back Inn in Aztec. At Pinon Hills you will get green fees and cart, and your guide/caddie to help club you and read the greens, as well as pick you up and drop you off at your hotel. Your guide will also show you the best fishing in the Southwest, the San Juan River, on a float. With everything but waders supplied. Package # 2 is more of the same, four nights lodging one day of golf and two days of guided fishing. These packages can be tailored to fit any ones needs. Prices can be adjusted if you prefer wading.

Pinon Hills is one of the top rated public course in the nation. It was #57 in Golf Magazine’s “Top 100 courses you can play for 2004-2005” and was # 6 on the ‘Top 50 for under $50 dollars” in the same issue. It offers the golfer wonderful views, plenty of wildlife as well as championship golf. This 7200+ yard Ken Dye layout is considered one of the finest challenges in the Southwest. The rolling hills, sandstone bluffs and pinon, juniper and cedar lined fairways are a must play for any one who enjoys the game of golf.

If you enjoy golfing and fly fishing there is no finer place to do both than here in the Four Corners of New Mexico. Many of you who enjoy both have probably fished the San Juan and not brought your clubs. Here’s a chance to check out the best of both worlds. Package # 1 is $739/2 persons and package # 2 is $1194/2 persons. Call our toll free number, 505-334-9789, and let Sandstone Anglers show you the best vacation ever!

Our Clients Say:

"If you're going to fish the San Juan, (or The Animas, Los Pinos, or upper San Juan for that matter), I don't think there is a better guide, (or fly-tier), than John Tavenner. Frankly, at this stage, I don't often use a guide, yet my wife bought me a trip with John, (whom we've known for about 9 years), as a birthday present on my last trip to the area.

"We decided to float the lower river as a change of pace, and we caught fish about every way imaginable. We rigged up 3 rods, and immediately started nymphing up trout on my 4 weight. Just downstream a few hours later, we saw the first rising fish, and I stuck him with John's perfect Baetis emerger attached to my 3 weight. After lunch, we decided to fling one of John's streamers at the banks with my 6 weight.

"I didn't total up how many trout we caught, but I remember most of them. The big rainbow that hit the streamer seemingly before it hit the water, and then ran right at the boat, almost landing at my feet as it jumped, was particularly memorable. As I was stripping like a madman, only to tighten up, and then have the fish run straight under the boat, take all the slack, and who-knows-how-much backing, jump on the other side, and still land him, had us cracking up and telling fish stories the rest of the day.

"Did I mention Monica, John's wife, makes the best burritos in the area?" - Tom Kennedy
