Lisa Bellue, Flys and Guides, S. Missouri, N. Arkansas

Born and raised on a 260 acre cattle farm in the small rural town of Willow Springs, Missouri, living life outdoors has become second nature; Lisa grew up hunting and fishing and has fished Missouri streams all her life. She took up the sport of fly-fishing during her Industrial Technology studies at Missouri State University in 1997 at the age of 20, fitting in countless sleepless nights on Taneycomo fishing for trout before her early morning course work.

Over the years fly-fishing has become her passion and she has fly-fished all over Missouri, Arkansas, and Oklahoma in the search of trout, carp, white bass, stripers, hybrid bass and just about any other species of fish that can be caught on a fly. She has traveled up to Canada in search of pink and king salmon down to the Yucatan peninsula chasing baby tarpon, snook, and bonefish.
