Rooted In Arizona Arizona Native Dan Deublein seeks a deeper connection within White Mountains of Arizona

The Proper Function

We’re Are All Rooted

The reality is this: we’re inheriting a very different environment from prior generations. Whether the discussion involves climate change, pollution, development or population growth one thing is clear; we have a responsibility to protect it. Not just for people who fly fish, but for everyone who wants to appreciate what these mountains have to offer. I believe that in order to protect something, you need to be deeply connected and invested in whatever it is that requires protection. Rooted in Arizona is my attempt to get you connected. 1


“I have friends that don’t fly fish and they ask why I do it. The simplest answer I can give is that it recalibrates my soul”  – Dan Deublein
