If you’re interested in getting into fly fishing, here’s a great way to do it if you’re in North Central Arkansas. Greg Seaton of The Little Red Fly Fishing Guide Service is offering free fly fishing classes in February.

Classes will run four consecutive weeks beginning Thursday, Feb. 16 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the First United Methodist Church in Heber Springs. The class is open to all beginning and novice fly-fishing enthusiasts (older youths and adults). Younger youths are welcome if accompanied by an adult. No fishing tackle is required, but if anyone has a question about their personal rod, reels or flies, bring them to the class and Seaton will answer any questions. The class will be held at church's Family Life Center.

To reserve a spot, call Seaton at 501-690-9166. If you cannot attend all the classes, register and attend the classes you can. There is no cost for the classes.

Seaton began fishing the Little Red River over 25 years ago. He loved it so much he eventually retired from the restaurant business and began a new career as a fly fishing guide. He finds fly fishing to be rewarding and relaxing and takes pleasure in teaching all ages the joy of the sport. His clients range in age from five to eighty-five year. He is also involved with Trout Unlimited as past President of Little Red River Action Team Chapter 722.

  • Donald Trump is historically unpopular — and not necessarily where you think

    My colleagues John Ray and Jesse Bacon and I estimate, in the first analysis of its kind for the 2018 election season, that the president's waning popularity isn't limited to coastal cities and states. The erosion of his electoral coalition has spread to The Natural State, extending far beyond the college towns and urban centers that voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016. From El Dorado to Sherwood, Fayetteville to Hot Springs, the president's approval rating is waning.

    Despite fierce protests from disabled people, the U.S. House voted today, mostly on party lines, to make it harder to sue businesses for violating the Americans with Disabilities Act. Of course Arkansas congressmen were on the wrong side.
