Fishing is not a sport for the impatient. That fact might be doubly true for fly fishing, a variation that requires even more attention to detail, knowledge of the environment, and practice than the live-bait variety. With 9,700 miles of rivers and streams in Arkansas, our state is one of the best places to try the sport year round—just take a trip to the White River, the Little Red, or the Norfork to see for yourself. And while fly fishing might be more challenging than other outdoor activities, there’s beauty in the waiting.
