Jason lives on the beach outside of Mahahual within striking distance of his favorite fishing holes and has been known to spot fish from his kitchen table. Specializing in walk and wade trips Jason has logged hundreds of hours stalking the ocean side flats since 2014, it’s safe to say that not many people know the coast between El Placer and Xcalak better from a fly fisherman’s perspective. Originally from the midwestern US, Jason also enjoys chasing trout and cussing at the Kansas City Chiefs.
