Greetings! I'm glad you found my web site flyflinger.com and hope you enjoy all its resources. Published continuously with weekly, and often daily, updates since 1996, the site has steadily grown into a complete information source on fly-fishing Arkansas' White River tailwater system and Ozark streams.

A lot of information has been provided to anglers fishing northwest Arkansas, north central Arkansas and southern Missouri. Fly-fishing tips, discussion of equipment and regulations, techniques, the art of fly-tying, links to realtime generation data, notice of conservation issues, frequently updated photos and trip reports make the site what it is.

I also pride myself in providing both accurate and prudent information. Arkansas tailwaters are inherently dangerous for fly-fishers, and the information put out to the public should be provided with some forethought as to how people will use it. This is one of the reasons I rarely say where or when I fished a particular location. An area fished on the tailwater in relative safety one day may hold entirely different conditions the next.

However, the site is more than about me or my guide business. It's about you—the angler—appreciation of Arkansas trout, and protecting our Natural State's trout fisheries.

Here is a summary of the different sections of the site.

So enjoy your visits and remember to bookmark the site.

Please feel free to contact me. I look forward to hearing from you.

Happy fishing,

Scott Branyan
