John Sappington is the best. My wife and I fished two days on Lake Taneycomo and caught alot of fish, learned different fishing techniques and were thoroughly entertained. We plan to get on his schedule again in the Spring.

We fished with John on a weekday afternoon. There were 2 couples and everyone enjoyed the experience. John will make everyone from experienced fisherman to novices feel like they were welcomed. We caught approximately 40 trout.
