Despite his near-to-Chicago upbringing, Jason's profound love for the outdoors has been a lifelong anchor. From a young age, he committed Wisconsin's driftless area streams to memory and later delved into Michigan's impressive trout waters. After high school, his passion for teaching and fishing brought him to a Colorado-based outdoor adventure camp, where he refreshed and ran the camp's fly fishing program.
Jason is not just an angler; he's an avid mountain biker, paddler, and budding hunter. He initially found himself in Brevard to pursue a Wilderness Leadership and Experiential Education and Exercise Science degree at Brevard College, deepening wild fish and racing bikes.
Within our team, Jason embodies versatility. He's proficient at teaching classes, handling shop operations, and managing our marketing. His diverse interests span from whitewater kayaking to rod building, fly tying, and backcountry/small stream fly fishing.
