We live in the Ozark Mountains of Oklahoma where we moved in 2005, near Tahlequah.   This may come as a surprise but the topography of the north-eastern corner of Oklahoma is almost identical to that of the Arkansas Ozarks where we lived for many years near Mountain Home and the fabulous White River.  The entire area is criss-crossed with beautiful little spring creeks and cool water rivers and in fact there are three smallmouth streams within 20 minutes of our home. A large lake -Tenkiller – is nearby and the Illinois River flows from it as a cold, trout stream. Big striped bass enter the Illinois from the Arkansas River and provide another wonderful fishing opportunity. Lots of other waters and a wide variety of fish are within easy driving distance, so obviously, this isn’t the typical terrain that most folks think of as Oklahoma.



Dave is an Oklahoma native from this area and attended college in Tahlequah, so he knows and loves this countryside very well. Emily was born in northern Arkansas, and these lush, rolling hills and low mountains  feel just like home. A lovely trout stream flows through the property which we use, along with the pond, to teach fly fishing in the spring and fall. We will also continue to speak and instruct at events across the country and occasionally take groups to fly-fishing destinations around the world. Writing, photography and fly design are year-round projects as well as working with stream owners to ‘redesign’  streams to improve fish and wildlife habitat, stream stability and the natural beauty.
