Rated 5 out of 5 by from 6 STARS! Having attempted to throw a fly only a few times, my rookie status was not in doubt. Within half a day, I was double-hauling and tying my own knots, thanks to Tony Simons. (Jamie Rouse Fly Fishing Adventures) Tony has the knack for teaching and is a pleasure to be around. We hammered fish all day, and this "rookie" aquired the skills and knowledge to go it alone with confidence. If you want to FLY give these guys a TRY! If there were another star to give, they'd get 6.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good times in the Arkansas hills! Just back from a trip with Rouse Fly Fishing Co. Not my first and this one was as good as all the others! Rouse has it figured out. From the ease of booking/paying to knowing how to catch trout- these guys get it done! Jamie is a top notch personality. Constantly engaging and upbeat, he works through the day with a focus on good times. Granted, he does that with the help of numerous trout to hand but you would have a fun time regardless. Clearly he knows where the fish are and how to get to them. His crew knows as well and I would be remiss if I did not applaud both Jordan and Tanner for time with them. Our group got the privilege to rotate through them and all of our party was very complimentary. If you are looking for a good time on the water and a memorable trip bringing trout to hand, I'd encourage you to get with Rouse Fly Fishing Co. Thanks Jamie!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A memorable experience I booked a trip with Rouse Fly Fishing while we were on a family spring break trip to Arkansas. We had the pleasure of fishing with Drew and had an incredible time. I decided to take my oldest son who is 7 years old along for a couple of hours, but he ended up spending the whole day with us as he was having so much fun. Drew was amazing with my son and my son thought he was such a “nice guide”. Drew put us on a lot of fish, he’s an excellent instructor to children (and adults), is super laid back and really knows the water! I would recommend Drew and Rouse Fly Fishing to anyone. It was such a memorable experience for my sons first guided fishing trip!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great time, great learning I took my two sons, 9 and 11, to fish with Rouse Fly Fishing. I've fished with Jamie a few times, and he is great. We ended up going with Drew on this tripe, as we had an incredible time. He was great with the kids, he got us on a lot of fish, and taught us a lot about casting, rigging, and stream insect life. The kids loved it, and I would recommend Drew and Rouse Fly Fishing to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tough conditions = Great Guides I just spent a few days fishing with Jordan Case and Tony Simmons. Water conditions weren't ideal, but they consistently put me on fish. It was a pleasure spending the day with both of these guys.
