Born and raised on the Gold Coast, Jackson hails from Stamford, CT, and spent summers in Narragansett, RI where he fished offshore for shark, tuna, and striped bass from the time he could hold a fishing rod.
As a competitive athlete who grew up playing baseball and football, Jackson’s competitive drive has translated into his love for fishing and guiding. Countless trips to southeastern ID visiting family and fishing the South Fork and Henry’s Fork with his dad and uncles made his move out west in 2018 a no-contest decision.
Jackson is passionate about “throwing foam and streamers right to the banks and watching fish come up and chop ‘em” with his trademark smile and permanent Costas tan. This love for fly fishing is infectious – just ask his friends or his beloved pup, Lani, who you’ll find him floating with any free minute of the season. When he’s not on the river, Jackson enjoys golfing, snowboarding at Targhee, and taking advantage of all the beauty Idaho has to offer.
