Trout fishing using a fly rod. John Sappington as my guide on Lake Taneycomo. I hope to use him again in the future.

John took care of everything once I arrived. He sought out the best fishing spots and we caught... read more

We had the best time fishing with John!! He took the time to ask what we wanted to experience on this trip. Four great hours of fun on Lake Taneycomo. He is a really nice guy and has a great sense of humor. Everything was provided including his great expertise. You really have to go fishing with John...he also has a great respect for the lake, fish, rules and the people he takes along for the ride! Thanks again John, we had a blast.

Wife and I went fishing with John on the morning of Oct. 27th. Used his fly rod set up, first time for us using. John does a great job of explaining what to do with the equipment, how to watch your line in the water, as well as reel the fish in. Weather was in the low to mid 40's and foggy that morning. The dam was letting out flood water over the gates, so I was not expecting a great day based on how high the water was, and how fast the water was moving. I was wrong. We netted 43 fish in 4 hours between my wife and I. Great time, John is a lot of fun. I would recommend, and will plan to go again the next time I am in Branson.

We were on a 4 hour guided fishing expedition with John on Lake Taneycoma in Branson, Missouri.. The results for our trip far exceeded our expectations. John patiently and humorously taught us how to fly fish and catch Trout. We caught approx. 10 fish each per hour for 4 hours.. Most everything we caught was in the 15" to 18" range. Suffice it to say, we were tired by the time we got back to dock. It was the fishing trip of a life time for us. Worth every penny we spent for the trip. Vern & Alice

I have fished this lake for 35 year and I have never gotten so many and so big fish as I did with John. I’m going next week and doing it again. He is the best. If you want a guide and don’t get John you are a dumbass.
