His nickname tells you right away why he has become one of the most sought after guides in northern Arkansas. He has so much more to offer than his pleasant demeanor and joyful attitude. Happy is the ultimate outdoorsman. He has taught his family hunting, fishing and trapping. Happy has studied Native Americans and has extensive knowledge of the great rivers they made their home hundreds of years before we got here. He uses some of the same techniques that he’s learned from them in his day to day life. Spending a day with Pressley is like spending a day with Daniel Boone or Davy Crockett.
All fishing guides look good on the successful days. Happy’s extensive knowledge of the outdoors helps him stand out on the not-so-good days. The most interesting man in Arkansas is not making beer commercials, he’s guiding on the Norfork River.
