Jared started fishing at a very young age. Even before he can remember, he and his grandpa ("Chick") went out with "Chick's" Zebco 33 on the lakes and rivers of Iowa. Jared soon moved onto the fly rod and was hooking panfish and trout on the rivers of Northeast Iowa. After time, Jared moved onto bigger things like pike. At the young age of 10 years old Jared's mom dropped a log on his head yet he has somehow retained the ability to cast and fish.
Jared moved to Summit County, Colorado in 1991. A few years later he moved up to Jackson Hole, Wyoming to check out the fishing "up North." After a brief stint in Jackson, Jared returned to Summit countyand regained his Summit County local status; a priveledge he still hold today.
