Check out this 29″ monster caught by Foster McDonald while fishing with the newest member of our guide roster Jason Loyd a few weeks back.

Jason was fishing Foster via Moose and Tina Watson’s White River Inn. This would have been an exceptional capture on a big streamer and 15lb. But Foster and Jason hooked and landed this fish with a Pheasant Tail nymph on 5x and a 5 weight _ an awesome result.

Jason is a down-to-earth Arkansas native you will really enjoy fishing with. He comes from a background of conventional tackle and hunting guiding, and several seasons of fly fishing guiding on the White.

He and his family have become good friends too, and we were lucky enough for him to accept our invitation.
