The White River near Mountain Home, AR

Guide Miles Riley

Solo trip to  fish the White river. Wadeable water all day. I fished one of my favorite spots, Rim Shoal in the morning and only had three strikes.  After lunch I headed for Wildcat Shoal and tore them up on soft hackles, including a nice 16 -18” brown and a rainbow almost that big. And there wasn’t another angler in sight all afternoon!

Fished with guide Miles Riley all day. We motored up to Buffalo Shoal where we had the area all to ourselves and I caught many rainbows, a few browns, and even a couple of smallmouth bass. Fly of the day was a #12 olive/black woollybugger.

Welcome!

Think of this blog as a comfy room in an old hunting shack. A bunch of pot-bellied guys are sitting around a big pot-bellied stove shooting the breeze about our outdoor exploits, some of which may have actually happened. Several dogs of indeterminate lineage are lying around under our feet, and we’re probably having a drink or two.

How was your duck season? Where’d you shoot that big buck? (besides in the shoulder). Got any hero pictures of the monster trout you caught recently? How’s that new dog working out? Got any good turkey or pheasant stories? Any fly patterns you’d like to share? Read any good books about the outdoors lately? Planning any trips to the San Juan? The White? Canada?

That’s what this blog is all about. What this blog is NOT about is POLITICS unless it pertains directly to outdoor sports. I’m sure you’re not interested in my political opinions and I’m not interested in yours.

So pull up a chair. What’s on your mind?
