Fisherman’s Brown Trout Holiday

I WAS  a little surprised when Phil Lilley gave me a call Monday seeking a guide trip to chase the hopper bit with his buddy Linc.

Phil’s a pretty accomplished fly fisher, in fact with most types of fishing, and runs Lilley’s Landing in Branson on Lake Taneycomo, and guided in Alaska _ I mean Phil has seen a trout or two. But by the same token he’s sharp enough to know no-one knows the water like local guides and plus you get a lot more fishing in when you aren’t having to run a boat etc.

Phil wrote a nice report on his very cool Ozark Angler’s website with a bunch more pics. Its worth browsing around Phil’s site and if you are heading to Branson, make sure you swing by Lilleys

Glad you guys had a great time.
