He is an expert oarsmen and is a certified class 4 rafting guide as well. Jack has fly fished all over the world in 23 countries. On many of these trips Jack was the client, scrutinizing his guides to determine what he liked and disliked about each one, giving him the opportunity to develop and offer one of the best client-oriented guide services available.
