The first day of the course will begin with three hours of one on one classroom instruction. Covered subjects include the art and history of fly-fishing, equipment and the uses of different types of equipment and the basics of fly-fishing   -  8:00 A.M. to 11:00 A.M.

The afternoon will be spent with personal instruction on how to use your fly rod, and with Frank's very successful casting methods. How to fish both the low water and high water levels of the White River. This will also include instruction on fly-fishing methods that you can and will put to use on streams or lakes other than the White River. This part will be taught using our nature pond  - 1:00 P.M. to 4:00 P.M.

The morning of the second day will be spent fly-fishing the White River for trout with Frank. This will be along the two miles of river frontage here at Gaston's White River Resort. If water conditions are too high for wade fishing then we will return to the nature pond for bass fishing  -  8:00 A.M. to 11:00 A.M. with Frank, however you may fish as long as you wish.

Our goal is to provide you with the very best instruction and quality education. In order to do this we must limit the number of fly fishermen to four per course. There will be no exceptions; however, there may be less. In no case however, will there be more than four.


In addition to the above instruction, the course will include the use of fly fishing equipment, selection of flies, and course study guide. You may bring your own equipment if you wish. You will need your own waders, polarized sunglasses, rain suit and hat.

The cost of cottage reservations will depend on what type of facilities you would prefer. Fishing licenses are available here at Gaston's White River Resort or by calling the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission at 1-800-364-4263.
