We booked a day with Chuck and his son Adam on a sunny
day in May. This is my sister, dad and yours truly.
We showed up at the shop and after a cup of coffee and
some talk about matching the hatch we were off to the river.
The river was running high and there
really wasnt much area to wade, but Chuck
got us into the action right away. His deep understanding
of the river and the fish that inhabit it was
truly impressive. From what I understand this is
probally the best spot for monster browns
and rainbows in the state of Missouri.
We spent the better part of the day hugging the shoreline
rollcasting at thousands of trout. Chuck and his son are
so proficient at putting people on fish that they make a
mockery of the other anglers everytime they go out. We caught
and released 10 fish for each fish everyone else caught.
He had my sister, who was 5
months pregnant, on fish all day long. She caught
and released 32 fish that day. In true big sister
fashion she made sure to point out the big
ones, you know even in her 30's she's still teasing me
If youre in Branson and want to spend a
day waist deep in beauty, fly rod in hand then
you simply must give Chuck a call at (417) 335-4655.
He charges just $50 bucks for a two-hour trip.
