Originally from New Hampshire, Jason spent his childhood fly-fishing lakes, rivers, small streams on the Atlantic coast of Maine, New Hampshire and Massachusetts with his father. He was easily able to enjoy both freshwater and saltwater growing up. Depending on the tide schedule, Jason was known to get up early to hunt brook trout, then drive to the beach to chase stripers with the incoming tide.
