Jesus’ Bio

Jesus was raised fishing the DC, Maryland, and Virginia (Chesapeake Bay) part of the Northeast. Back and forth between the Northeast and Florida, he spent quite a few years in various fisheries. These days, Jesus spends the majority of his time fly-fishing the Gulf side of Florida, including a good portion of the Everglades and 10,000 Islands. A majority of his fly-fishing is done on foot, wading with alligators and the occasional python. He says it’s all about accessing the “honey holes” back in the Everglades.

If it wasn’t for accidentally flipping his kayak and dumping his custom spinning rig (Van Staal VS150 and custom rod) into the drink, he may have never been introduced to fly-fishing. From that day forward, Jesus has exclusively fly-fished. Jesus shared some good times spent on the water catching his 44 inch Snook, huge Black Drum, Redfish, Tarpon, and many other species.

His passion for fly-fishing didn’t stop there – he jumped into fly-tying wholeheartedly. Today, fly-tying offers a perfect channel for his creativity and entrepreneurial spirit. Jesus recently created the Salty River Fly Company web site and is looking forward to its speedy growth and expanded inventory of fly patterns.

    Hi all – Jesus has been difficult to get a hold of in recent months. Some of his web resources have disappeared. Let’s give him some time to surface again.

      Thanks for the inquiry Tom! I can see some of his contact info in the post is outdated. Let me track him down through social media channels. As soon as I find him, I’ll connect you both. My apologies for the late response.
