The North Arkansas Fly Fishers  was founded in 1983 and incorporated as a non-profit corporation of the state of Arkansas in 1985 and today has over 450 members. From the beginning, we’ve been active in conservation and education and that interest continues to this day. We are especially proud of our record in youth education. We have conducted fly fishing and fly tying classes for Mountain Home home schooling organizations and have taught fly fishing and fly tying to students and youth groups at the Norfork National Fish Hatchery and Dry Run Creek. Our activities in the realm of conservation include actively supporting efforts to save Crooked Creek and supporting regulations to maintain our great fishery on the White and Norfork Rivers. NAFF has donated funds in support of the renovation of Dry Run Creek and oxygen diffusers at the Norfork National Fish Hatchery. NAFF helped with improvements to the access at Roundhouse Shoals with help from, Arkansas Game and Fish Commission and the city of Cotter. Improvements include a new parking area with walking paths down to the rivers edge. NAFF,s latest contribution is a picnic pavilion at Mc Cabe Park.
