John took my spouse and I out and caught our limit of trout in no time. Although we have fished Taneycomo for years our experience with him as a guide was more than helpful. John is very knowledgeable and a true professional ! We would definitely recommend John for your fishing guide!

My boys, wife and I had a wonderful time with John Sappington. He is laid back and was great with the boys. We caught a few to take home and eat. The rest of the time we fished the trophy section on the river. Everyone in the group caught an impressive rainbow and my wife caught a beautiful brown pictured in this post. We will be back!! Make sure to talk to John to set your date and time. He is and will be in demand with the experience he gives.

My wife and I had an amazing experience on our fishing trip with John. John is very knowledgeable and has a great sense of humor. He choice of locations was outstanding and kept both my wife and I busy catching a ton of trout. We loved every minute of it and look forward to booking another trip with him soon.

My son and I had the best time with John. He is extremely knowledgeable and has a great manner with his clients. My son had no experience and John worked with him to help him catch a lot of trout. Highly recommended John and we will be back!

Today we experienced the most amazing fishing trip with John! We caught a countless number of fish! Our kids loved every minute of our time on the boat. John is a fantastic guide, he had so many patients with the kids and had us all laughing with his humor! You don't want to miss a chance to fish with John while you're in the Branson area! It's simply awesome!!!
