ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Jackson Streit has been fly fishing for over 30 years. Since 1971 he’s fished in Colorado an average of over 100 days a year!
After graduating from Denver University, Jackson moved to the ski resort town of Breckenridge, Colorado where he has lived ever since. In 1977, he started the first fly fishing guide service in the area. In 1985 he opened The Mountain Angler, a thriving fly shop he still owns and operates. The shop supplies gear, guides and fly fishing information to anglers testing the many waters of Colorado and beyond.
Jackson has personally tested these “beyond” waters, having guided and fished most of the western U.S. and Florida as well as New Zealand, Belize, Mexico and the Bahamas. He also escorts a group of fly fishers to the Christmas Islands each year.
Jackson and his array of photos are sought by the fly fishing community for presentations, especially by fly fishing clubs. He has written many articles for Colorado publications and is very involved in his Trout Unlimited chapter. In the summer he teaches fly fishing school.
When not raising his family, traveling, managing his fly shop or writing about fly fishing, Jackson plans and waits for his next chance to fish.
