Flys and Guides is an independent fly fishing guide service and commercial and custom fly-tying provider. Jeremy and Lisa take pride in being a family based guide service that gears itself towards any fly-fishing anglers needs. We specialize in trips from the beginner to those with years of casting experience. The guides at Fly’s and Guides provide educational and instructional information vital to your day on the water and useful information that will prove to be beneficial as one continues to grow in the sport of Fly-fishing. Trips in years past included Branson’s Lake Taneycomo. Recently in early 2021, Jeremy and Lisa opened a Fly Shop on the banks of the White River in Lakeview, Arkansas focusing their guiding to the tailwaters of the Norfork and White River systems. Fly’s and Guides continues to use only the best materials and hooks available offering the public quality flies and reasonable prices. The Fly Shop brands include GLoomis, Redington, TFO, Lamson, Douglas , Galvan, Smith Optics, Suncloud, Fishpond, Hareline, Airflo, Rio, Wulff, Cortland, Loon, Anvil, Stonfo, Regal, and numerous others. The fully stocked Fly Shop has well over 100,000 flies available more than any other flyshop in the area and is the closest Fly Shop to the Bull Shoals Dam. Park the boat on the banks of the White River and one can walk to the Fly Shop and if and when possible we can deliver flies for the river!

Quick Reports - September 2023
Norfork - Low Water Grand Slam
I was out today with David and his father Jim. They have been on the White River the last few days around Wildcat, so not only was it nice to get away from the motors but to show these gentlemen some new water.
Norfork - Brown's on the Move!!
Hopper Season | August – September 2023
Hopper Time on the White River
White River "On the go Quick Kit"
It’s that time of the year where you get to witness some serious surface eats using bigger terrestrials for mostly nothing but brown trout!!
The breakdown in this “easy-to-go” kit has everything you need to get some quality browns, in both water scenarios. We built this kit to keep the guess work out. We have another hopper kit that has a little more if you want more variety.
We like to fish pinks and tans during the day and switch to black and shades of purples as the sun is dropping. If you plan on fishing lower flows, fish shoals and in the middle and throw a dropper to keep it fun with stockers eating midges and nymphs. I like throwing 3x on bigger hoppers and 4x on smaller ones. I run 5x with nymphs and 6x with midges off the bend of the hook, shallow water I’ll run midges, in shoals or deeper runs I will run nymphs or girdle bugs.
