The Ozarks are an angler’s dream and this dream is where Longboat Outfitters owner and guide Kyle Kosovich was raised since he was just a tadpole. He grew up only a mile from both the North Fork of the White River and the Bryant Creek – two of the best float fishing streams in Missouri. He began his fly fishing and fly tying early at age 12. It was in these rivers that Kyle learned to take rainbows, browns, smallmouth by fly and catch channel cat and flathead catfish during summer nights. Though he learned and grew a lot on these streams, he needed more.
