Amazing time. We have gone out with John a few times and every trip is awsome. This last trip we had two teenagers and two adults and we caught over 100 fish in 4 hours. If you want to have a great time and catch fish he is the man for the job.

I took my 13 year old son and my 75 year old father out for a trout fishing experience. Nobody had any experience fishing. John provided very patient teaching and a even more ever gracious attitude towards our never ending ability to tangle a line. We caught more fish in six hours than I thought possible. I appreciated his catch... More

John doesn't brag so I'll do it for him. Took my two grown sons 3 18 17 on a guided trip with John. Never met the man. This guy has a vast amount of fishing knowledge and trout is certainly an area he excels in. We learned so much in just four hours. He knows exactly how to fish to... More

Best guided fishing trip EVER!! I even grew weary of reeling them in!! (And I LOVE to fish!!) John Sappington is extremely personable and an all around great guide!! He made sure we enjoyed the scenery on Taneycomo Lake, pointing out the eagle's nest and other interesting landmarks. We will definitely be back!!! Six Stars should be an option for... More

John gave my folks a great experience catching trout on Taneycomo. They stopped in Branson on their way back to Northern Missouri on their snow bird migration back from Texas. John was very helpful in arranging the trip via email and telephone. They caught over 60 fish, including some very nice rainbows. My dad said "he really knows what he's... More

I have fished for trout in the past and was happy with 2 or 3 per day, fun to catch, good to eat. When we went out with John I caught more fish in a few hours than all the other trips combined! An awesome time! Came home with a limit of trout and a recipie John suggested to cook... More

We had a great time fishing with John, caught over 100 fish on 1/2 day trip. This was our first trip on Taneycomo, and I think we hit the jack pot finding John. He knows what he's doing, I watched others struggling to catch fish while we were hooked up continually. We will be calling him again in the near... More

I am a fly fishing guide who went of a "busman's holiday" with John. I had a blast and I appreciate the good fisherman that John is.

Having John Sappington as a guide provided an experience that is about as much fun as a guy can have. I would use him again in a heartbeat. Not only did I catch 80 plus trout in 4 hours, a personal record, John is also an excellent, personable guide who know his way around Taneycomo like the back of his... More
