Sunday I took out Pat and Chandler for their first fly fishing experience. It was a chilly day but not awful. The boys caught on super fast and we were whacking fish in no time. It turned out to be an incredible day with gobs of fish to the boat! Here is a thumper that Chandler caught!

Last week I got the chance to fish with my man Michael Morgan for a p.m. half day. It was cold and rainy, just the way we like it. We decided since it was a solo trip for Michael that we wouldn't even bring a nymph rod and dedicate the day to chucking streamers. We moved some really nice fish and had a few solid fish even eat but we didn't stay buttoned up. We did however catch a tons of fish in the 15-18 inch range. It was a pretty sweet afternoon on the water!

Today I fished with a great client of mine. Nate. You guys see pics of him all the time on the blog, in fact one of my last posts was with Nate back in Jan. We'll He did it again. Decided this morning we would go get in the fresh generation and throw around some streamers. It was a great 1/2 day of fishing. Nate landed a nice rainbow and then a big handful of solid browns!
Last week I spent 5 days up on the white river. We had our annual St. Louis crew, then some great clients of mine from Crosset Arkansas came up for a few days. We had decent weather, and a little generation. We had some great days drifting floating shad with shad droppers as well. We also had some days that we didn't see any shad. All in all it was a fun great week of white river fishing. I apologize for the lack of blog posts this winter. I will try and get back on top of it this spring!

Last week I got the chance to fish with my man Nate. water was running two gens and we were the only people on the water. We fished for a half of a day and absolutely spanked them. Nate caught several nice fish and then gobs of fish in the 15-17 inch range. like almost ever cast. Here are a few of the better ones from our frigid fishing day!
My buddy Cliff and His crew joined us again this year for a couple of days of fly fishing. We spent one day up on the nor fork in drift boats and then the next day we did kind of a covert operation on the Little Red. Sort of a walk wade deal that involved some sneaky drift boat use! Anyways it turned out to be a pretty sweet day. Cold and " wintery mixish" but we made it happen. Here are a few photos from the trip!
As I'm sure anyone of you who has read my blog for a while knows this guy "The Farns". Robert aka the farns comes to fish with us every year. He has become a good friend and client over the years. He usually comes for a week or so at a time a couple of times a year. This year it was bitter cold and we go knocked out of a few days of fishing due to in climate weather. I did manage to snap this pic one day before the ice storm rolled in with Robert and a great brown.
The rest of 2013 was a great year on the Little Red. I got super busy and neglected the blog and apologize to you readers for that. I am going to try and do a little catching up. Ill start off with a few cool pics from Mid december. A couple of cool fish I caught with our good client Gene and then of course one big papa caught when were were showing the boys how to get the job done!

Last week I got the chance to run up to the Norfork and take advantage of the min. flow. I took a great JRFFA client and Supporter of the Little Red River with me, Allen Gordon. We smacked on them. It was a cold, gloomy day but the fishing was awesome. Here are a few pics from the day of a few of the fish Allen sore mouthed!
