Jake grew up in the Michigan where his first experiences with a fly rod were off his fathers back at the age of one year old. Jake's earliest memories of fishing came a few years later around the age of 5 when he caught and landed his first few brown trout on a dry fly. He has been chasing trout for 19 years in Michigan and has been traveling to Montana for 12 years to fish its famous streams.
When he picked up a map of Montana and saw the Gallatin, Madison, Yellowstone and countless other rivers surrounding Bozeman, he slowly broke the news to his family that he would be attending Montana State university after high school. now 20 years old, Jake is entering his junior year at Montana State. He plans to stay in Bozeman and continue fishing the legendary streams that surround it.Back To Staff
