Christmas night my friend Hays came up from Jackson for an action packed week of fishing. Heber Springs had received lots of rain and the river was brown. We loaded up the Tent and camping stuff and drove up to the White River. We wanted to chuck some streamers the first morning but had to wait on the water to rise. While waiting, we suited up in our waders and did some nymphing. I caught the monster on about my third cast! The water rose and we pounded streamers. We caught fish pretty solid for two days. It was a lot of fun. We then went back to the Little Red, only to find a still dingy river and not so hot fishing! We still had a blast doing what we love.
