About Me 

Hey there, my name is Jack Shirk. Fishing, in general, has always been my life’s passion. It wasn’t till college that I picked up a fly rod. I grew up developing my skills on the lakes and limestone creeks of Central Pennsylvania. Then after college, I spent five years in Colorado fine-tuning my game, diversifying my skill set, and chasing trout all over the Rockies, from meadow streams to alpine lakes, and everywhere in between. I now call the Watauga and South Holston rivers in Northeast Tennesee home where my clients and I chase large, wild brown trout on big flies. Let’s go fishing!
