Arkansas Trip Pictures

I am working on adding a new section to about the area around the Norfork and White Rivers in Arkansas. Tonight I have been cropping pictures and thought I would share some of them with you.

If you are not a Fly Fisherman then you probably should stop at The Dam Bait Shop before you get to the river. Zug made a note to be sure to look up the scriptures that were referenced at the bottom of the sign. He felt sure he had read Bud 17:29 at least once before.

Here is the view from the top of the dam on the Northfork River. Paisley stopped the car right under the sign that said to be sure not to stop on the dam. I think that the island in the middle of the river is at least remotely trout shaped.

Here is a good one of Paisley looking all "guidelike" with a very nice Arkansas Rainbow trout. There is absolutely no truth to the rumor that he bought it at the Dam Bait Shop. The only reason it looks all frozen and lifeless because Zug used a really high shutter speed on the camera when he took the picture. One of the perks of being the Editor is that when someone else catches a bigger fish you get to say whatever you want to about it. All kidding aside though, that was one nice Bow and Paisley did a great job of landing it on 7x tippet.
