  2. Its getting to be that time of year again. The Fly Fishing Fair will be held in Mtn Home, Ar the weekend of October 2-3. Below are a list of the programs being provided.

Proper material use and durability. This is an advanced tying class. Bring your vise and tools & thread, other materials wil
  3. Per Christy the generator was started and is currently going. Temps are dropping, but they will be closely watching the fish to assess the damage.
  4. Garr aren't going to help the trout population who are going to be cooking. Not to mention the recent planting of roe by TU. This could be a pretty negative thing for the tailwater ecosystem.
  5. I received this email from Christy yesterday evening. Hello All, I’m sure a lot of you are aware of the situation at Beaver Tailwater. The COE has had a mechanical failure of both turbines at the Dam and has started releasing water from only the spillway gate. The major concern of course, has been high water temperatures in the tailwater. Trust me, I am as concerned as anyone about the implications this has for the trout fishery. I assure you, AGFC has been aware of this since nearly minute one and have been closely monitoring the situation. With the lake at the top of the flood p
  6. I know its a haul, but several firms are hiring here in NWA.

  8. I attended SMR this year and ran the Reel Recovery booth. Always a good show.

  11. I have been a part of the updating of the management plan for the last two years. The issue is the Commission. Here is the latest Management Plan Draft. http://www.agfc.com/fishing/Documents/TP_BeaverTWManagementPlan2012-2016.pdf
  12. Alot depends on the bug. Certain "prolific" western hatches happen a certain time a year. Around here.....midges can hatch every day. Caddis have a spring and fall hatch. Water and weather conditions determine length and quantity.
  13. Local shop here in Bentonville will do the same. Have had them do several pairs of boots with Vibram. Might take my old wading boots in there to have them redo them.
  14. Bobber.....give me a shout with any questions. Doty pretty well covered it. It would amaze you how many guides do not carry insurance. Thats a huge deal. Marketing materials are a big deal up front, trying to build your customer base. You also have to figure out which clientel you want......fish-numbers guys or people looking for the outdoor experience. Both come with their own challenges.

  17. Calling for 8+ inches in alot of North Arkansas.
  18. Check out Dave Whitlock's "Guide to Aquatic Trout Food" or "Trout and Their Foods".
  19. Contact Greg Dodds. He is a close friend and great fly fisherman and guide. http://www.checkurfly.com/
  20. This is a great price on a killer rig. I have used a few diff pontoons and absolutely love them. About to slide back into another one myself.
  21. I have to highly recommend staying at Phil's. I can't say enough good things about Phil and fam as well as the quality of lodging.
  22. GM...I would take this little drifter over a canoe or kayak any day. Great stability and very easy to maneuver around the water. Also can carry a ton of gear.
