Friday Photo – Reeltime

More than 45 years ago I used to walk around Rustic Acres Resort east of Branson, MO meeting people in other cabins. Yes, that’s right I was somewhere around 2 at the time. For the following 15 or so years I learned that one week out of the year was “reeltime.” “Reel” as in “rod and reel.” We would sit on Lake Taneycomo at least3 times a day hoping to catch our “limit.” “Big Paw” taught us patience and quiet. We took a hiatus from this trip until about 1990 when we began making the trek again. Today we visit the same lake but stay at a different resort. We have all gathered for another week of Trout fishing. Not much else, after all, it is “reeltime.”

  1. Rustic Acres… wow! I grew up making annual trips there with the family. Now I do the same, albeit to a different resort.

    There’s just no place quite like Lake Taneycomo.

    1. Yes, we enjoy this place.
