Jake was born and raised on the East Coast where he grew up fly fishing the technically challenging rivers, lakes, and streams of the Adirondacks, the Pine Barrens, the Pocono and Catskill Mountains, New England, and all points from Maine to Florida.
Jake's passion for fly fishing led him west to study at Western Rivers Guide School, run by WorldCast Anglers in Victor, Idaho. Upon completion, he was first given the opportunity to work in their pro shop, then honored with the privilege of guiding for them during the summers.
Jake then moved to Arkansas to attend college in 2019. Jake was blown away with the amount of fishing opportunities available to him in the area. He has been guiding here in Arkansas since. Jake's boat is full of fun learning experiences and memories that will last a lifetime.
