Jeff Smith

Jeff Smith

Owner of Leland's Lures

Jeff Smith is the owner of Leland’s Lures and Sore Lip’em All Guide Service. Jeff started with one lure, the Trout Magnet. Now Leland’s Lures carries many products for trout and crappie enthusiasts. Leland’s Lures products are sold all across the country and regionally through Wal-Mart, Bass Pro, Dick’s Sporting Goods and many other retail stores. The Trout Magnet was named by Field and Stream Magazine as one of the top 30 lures of all time. Jeff has been featured in numerous TV shows and magazine articles. As the Trout Magnet was blessed with growth and popularity, requests were received from all over the world to fish the Trout Magnet on its home waters (the Little Red River). As a result, the Sore Lip’Em All Guide Service was created to provide guided trout fishing trips using the Trout Magnet. Even though Jeff now spends most of his time in the office or promoting the Leland’s Lures products, you will still find him on the water providing Sore Lip’Em All clients a trip to remember.

Guide

David grew up fishing the Caney Fork River in his home state of Tennessee, but while attending college here in Arkansas his passion for fishing grew…specifically trout fishing on the Little Red River with Trout Magnets. David has proven himself as an excellent trout angler and as a Sore Lip’Em All guide with countless hours on the river. David not only uses the Trout Magnet conventionally with the float system, he has also mastered the technique of “twitching” the Trout Magnet with the right water conditions. We are confident that you will experience a great trip with David and that he will put you on fish. Book a Sore Lip’Em All Guide Service trip with David today.
