Welcome to our online fly shop! We are a small fly shop nestles up to the banks of the historic White River, only about a mile downstream from Bull Shoals Dam in Lakeview, Arkansas. We are the closest fly shop to the river. Being so close to the river allows us to deliver flies directly to your boat, or simply beach the boat in front of Copper John’s Resort and take an easy 300-yard walk to the shop in order to shop in person. We are always happy to help select flies, and give helpful tips on current fishing conditions, gear, or just talk fishing. Even though we are a small shop, we have the best selection of flies and materials in the Twin Lakes area.
We have a plethora of local patterns; we pride ourselves in always having must have flies in stock at all times. In our “Meat Locker” you will find an abundance of streamers in demand for fishing the White. What is also unique about our shop is we had an artist incorporate the landmarks which is the Cotter bridge and Bull Shoals dam into our logo which has been great for the those who want some really great souvenirs whether it is a hat, t-shirt, sun shirt or stickers. Whether you are a die-hard angler, or shopping for one in your life we have a great selection of local keepsakes.
One thing we love to do here at Flys and Guides is tie flies, and in the fall, we even offer tying classes. We are certain our selection of fly-tying materials will meet the demands of the most diligent tier. We have all the innovative materials to tie the latest creations in the game. While we have a large selection of traditional materials like deer and elk hair, saddles, rabbit strips much more, we are always searching and buying new materials like Chocklett’s body wrap, fettuccine foam, EP brushes, Dragon Tails, and more. We offer a wide range of materials to make sure you can tie the patterns you need correctly. Here at Flys and Guides we are always just a phone call away to help with any tying questions you may have.
Going back to the traditional materials, we pride ourself on having a great variety of tying threads, hooks and beads so you can tie your favorite midge, scud or wooly bugger, our vast selection of materials does not limit our customers on only a couple color patterns, but a wide array of different colors to make sure our customers have every availability possible. Our thread selection is also a point of pride as we ensure our customers the proper thread, bead, wire and eye selections.
