     A recipient of the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission's "Master Angler Award," Duane is the first and only person to date to catch all qualifying fish on fly tackle.

     He has been featured on nationally syndicated shows such as "The Fishing Hole," and "Fly Fishing America" and is a coach to the US Youth Fly Fishing Team.

     Duane's adventures have taken him to Alaska after trophy rainbows and salmon and to the Florida Keys for tarpon and permit. He has fished for redfish and "specks" in the Gulf of Mexico and exotic bonefish and trevally in the waters off Christmas Island. Despite fishing many exciting destinations, he still is at home and equally happy when he guides on the Arkansas tailwaters and wild smallmouth bass streams that were his boyhood haunts.

     In addition to booking frequent trips for trout and smallmouth in Arkansas, Duane puts together saltwater excursions to several locations for bonefish, tarpon, and permit and can arrange lodging at local resorts and lodges or for private cabins near the water. For more information call 870-435-2787.
