​​Lori Sloas is a licensed Arkansas guide, who has been fishing since the age of six.  She decided to pursue fly fishing in 1999 for more of a challenge and the serenity of the sport. Teaching is a passion and she has years of experience of being a corporate trainer and has a background in Counseling. 

Fly fishing doesn’t require strength or power to enjoy this sport and fly casting is not as difficult as you may think.  She developed casting techniques that can easily be taught to a person who has never held a fly rod.  A basic cast is taught and then she prefers to teach beginners a couple of simple fishing techniques to begin with, in order to catch fish.  Lori's teaching model was designed to simplify the sport and explain techniques in a way that is not intimidating to a beginner.  The goal of teaching is to provide a comfortable environment so you can gain confidence on the stream and being on stream.  Classes can be tailored to your needs.  Feel free to get a group of friends together or put your name on a list for upcoming classes.  The classes address an overview of gear and gear selection, fly casting, entomology and fly selection, reading water, rigging, and water safety.  If you do not have any gear, we can provide it at no additional cost.  Target lessons are for ladies that want to learn specific techniques to advance their skills.  Overview of ladies fly fishing services available for beginners to advanced.
