The outdoors have always been a huge part of Jason's life despite growing up just miles from Chicago. Before he could drive he was begging everyone to take him to fly fishing in Wisconsin's small driftless area streams or to the other amazing trout streams that Michigan had to offer. After high school, his love for teaching and fishing led him to an outdoor adventure-based summer camp where he helped to develop and run a fly fishing program in the front range of Colorado.
