My 14 year old son and myself recently went out with Brett and had a blast catching who knows how many fish overall with a couple of really nice ones just under 20". The first thing that stood out for me was how great Brett was to work with. Setting up the reservation was very easy and we texted a couple of times during the week as we were keeping our eye on the weather. The morning of the trip was raining and fortunately he didn't have a trip for the afternoon so we were able to delay our start time until the rain stopped. We really appreciated that. When we were out on the water he gave us clear instructions on what to feel for and how to let the line out and then we started catching fish shortly thereafter. He kept a rod in our hand as much as possible, often taking one from us and giving us a new one so he could clean the moss off the old lures. On our big fish he took our pictures and then sent them all to me. It was a great experience and I highly recommend.

Brett was amazing! We are use to fishing, He encouraged us to learn how to fly fish. He thought both of us in a matter of minutes. We caught some good fish! Brett is super nice and knowledgeable. He made sure we had the best fishing tip. From time to time he would give you a new pole and bring yours in for you to make sure it was not cover in moss. I would recommend him to anyone who wants to have a good fishing trip!

Brett had us on fish all four hours we were on the water. While we caught fish in good numbers, he also put us on a trophy to end the day! It was my wife’s first time using a fly rod. Brett taught her everything she needed to know and had her catching fish in minutes. On her last cast of the day she caught a 30 1/4” brown trout on a fly Brett tied! During the 30 minute fight, Brett gave her clear, calm instruction as he professionally maneuvered the boat in stout current to give her the best chance of landing the monster. Her fish ended up weighing 13.9 lbs! Brett will put you on fish and if you are fortunate enough to hook a monster, he has the skill to help you get it to the net. Book with confidence!

I've been out with Brett a couple of different times now, and both times have been a fantastic experience. On my latest adventure, I pulled in two (yes two) 20"+ rainbow trout. During that same trip, one of my buddies caught a 23" brown trout that took us on an entertaining ride. Brett is extremely knowledgeable, helpful, and patient which makes the entire trip enjoyable. I would definitely recommend Brett to make your Taneycomo fishing experience successful.

Booked a last minute trip through Chartered Waters. Brett was my guide for the afternoon . First of all, Brett arrived on time and well prepared. His knowledge of the tailwater at Taneycomo is unrivaled. He knew every hole to find BIG trout , he knew what they were eating, water levels etc. Not only did we find huge trout in the deeper pools , we found a 24" in the riffles...An amazing day. Highly recommend Brett has he is a mild mannered, not in your face know it all guide. I felt totally comfortable and he taught me a lot.
