... Read More flock to it for the experience of catching trophy trout. While fishing with spinning rods from johnboats has always been popular, fly anglers are increasing in numbers and Dan here is leading the charge!
Dan spends most of his time and efforts focusing on the tail-waters below Bull Shoals Dam. This 30-40 miles stretch is known for producing big rainbows and more prevalently monster browns! The season never closes for the Trout, and thus never stops for Dan either!
On the day of your trip, you will meet up with Dan either at a local fly shop or at one of the many boat launches that line the stretch of river below Bull Shoals. You'll load your gear and belongings aboard Dan's John boat which will already be loaded with all the necessary gear for your trip. Dan likes to do some drifting down this tale water but also has a Mercury outboard strapped to the back of his John boat to give you easy access to the best water whether that's way downstream or back upstream!
Dan will take care of everything for his full-day trip offerings, from rods, reels, tackle, flies, expert instruction, and even a lunch and beverages. For half-day trips, all is the same only lunch will not be provided. Usually you'll be off the water by noon, but if you'd like to bring some snacks to hold you over, you are more than welcome!
