Your one-stop website for fly fishing the White River, the Norfork Tailwater, and Lake Taneycomo
"Jeremy Hunt and Taneycomo Trout provide a host of programs that cover different aspects of fly fishing for trout on the White River and Norfork Tailwater in Arkansas along with his home-waters of Lake Taneycomo outside of Branson, Missouri. These programs are designed to increase fly fishing education and promote the enjoyment of the sport. Taneycomo Trout offers dynamic fly fishing services and this is another reason that we are not typical White River Fly Fishing Guides".
The programs I offer are a labor of love. I find it very gratifying to share my passion for fly fishing with others and I enjoy telling people about the trout waters I cherish. It is always an honor to get invited to various clubs and other fly fishing entities to give a presentation. Please do not hesitate to ask about what I can do for your organization. These programs can be adapted to serve almost any purpose. Fly fishing presentations are a great way to bring everyone together after a day of fishing, so be sure to consider the appropriate services for your next large fly fishing outing or gathering. My rates are based on a sliding-scale, so I will work with prospective clients in an effort to come to a mutual agreement.
The On-Stream Skills Workshop
This concept is perfect for those who want to learn as much as they possibly can about the White River and its fly fishing. These one-day workshops will accommodate seven to ten participants. I will be covering all aspects of fly fishing on the White River; from entomology to casting techniques. Some time will be spent actually fishing, but this experience is far more comprehensive than a standard guide trip.
The On-Stream Skills Workshop will be held at Lake Taneycomo. Because we are currently in a dry period, I will be planning the first of these hands-on seminars for the first or second weekend in March 12th 2011. Please let me know if you are interested. If the water is high, arrangements will be made to find safe places to access the river, but fishing opportunities will be extremely limited if there are more than two units running – this experience is about far more than just catching trout, though. Skills workshops will be held on weekends to increase the odds of low water. No matter what the flows look like, this program is an affordable and fun crash-course that will leave participants with a much deeper understanding of the White River Basin trout fisheries.
Sample On-Stream Workshop Itinerary

The success of these workshops will depend on the response I receive. Hopefully, this program will provide a unique opportunity for fly fishing education. The price for attending the On-Stream Skills Workshop is $60 per person.

Jeremy’s Hunt’s Streamer Clinic
This program teaches about the many varied flies and techniques that are utilized when streamer fishing. I will tie up several productive patterns along with the showing videos I have produced. Streamer fishing is the most proven method of targeting large trout. The skills taught in this clinic will increase the odds of hooking up with the fish of a lifetime. Pictures, slides and other materials will be personally supplied. Click here to see a preview of it.
The Comprehensive Fly Tying and Fly Fishing Techniques Clinic
Please allow for a minimum of two hours for this program. This clinic is about tying productive trout flies and learning how to fish them. I will teach the basic tying steps for a minimum of ten different patterns. After each fly has been tied, I will go over the proper way of fishing the pattern. It is possible to preselect which flies will be covered in each presentation. The tying and techniques clinic is the perfect introduction to fly tying, and those with experience will still find the presentation intriguing.
White River Overview Presentation
This program was created to provide clubs and organizations with a general overview of the dynamics and fly fishing of the misunderstood White River Basin. I will cover the best spots to go, water flows and fly selection. Fly tying makes up a small part of the presentation, and the overall goal is to explain the unique and productive angling opportunities available in the Ozarks. All questions will be answered as thoroughly as possible.
