Call it anything but a hobby. Trout fishing is a calling, and to the many fly-fishers who spend a lifetime perfecting their craft—it’s an art form, too. Few places on Earth offer a better canvas for practicing the art of trout fishing than Arkansas’s White River. A 720-mile waterway in total, there is a special section of the White River near Bull Shoals Dam that is known internationally as a fisherman’s paradise.
