Even a bad day on the water is better than a day in the office. But still, it’s frustrating to spend hours in pursuit of fish without hooking anything substantial. When you hire a fly fishing guide in Arkansas, you’ll spend better time on the White River and surrounding creeks. You’ll have access to years of expertise and pro equipment, as you fish alongside pros who spend their lives on the river.

Get pro help regardless of your experience level.

When you’re a beginner to a new sport, such as fly fishing, working with a professional for help and guidance just makes sense. If you want to start fishing but have little or no prior experience, an Arkansas fly fishing guide can help, explaining equipment, technique, and strategy.

However, if you’ve been fishing for years, working with a professional guide can help you hone your skills and teach you new techniques. There’s always something more to learn when you’re an angler, from fish behavior to reading the water and casting. A guide will likely have insight into an aspect of fishing that you haven’t encountered before. You can expand and hone your skills while experiencing world-class fishing in Northwestern Arkansas.

Learn how to fish the waters in a new area.

Even if you’re comfortable fishing near your home, the waters of a new area are entirely different. Rather than wasting hours or days of your fishing trip learning the terrain in a new location, you can get insider tips for catching your quarry of choice.

As an Arkansas resident who regularly fishes the White River or the creeks of the area, you have an opportunity to learn new approaches to your regular waters. Our boats and access points will also let you explore areas of the Fayetteville-Bensenville area that may be totally new to you.

Add safety and peace of mind to your trip.

Arkansas fly fishing guides spend their careers on the water. They bring expertise, routine, and safety to any excursion, whether you’re going out for the day or on an overnight camping trip. You don’t have to worry about what to do in an emergency, as there are company procedures in place for every circumstance, from injury to inclement weather and more.

Find the fish you want (and sometimes, more fish).

The White River is world-famous for our record-setting trout. Whatever your quarry for your trip, we know the area of the river where you’ll have the best chance of success. From the Beaver Dam to the Bull Shoals, Kings Creek, and Norfolk Creek, we know where to stalk all the fish species in the area, depending on the time of year.

While there’s never any guarantee in fishing, many experienced anglers find they can hook more fish when they work with professional guides. Arkansas fly fishing guides are on the water day after day. They know the movements and habits of the fish so they can eliminate time wasted in the wrong areas of the river and help you secure more fish throughout the day.
