JHFA Fishing Guides

Jason Budd

Guide

Jason Budd is originally from Vermont, and has had a passion for fishing and the outdoors since he was old enough to hold a fishing rod. After moving to Jackson Hole, WY in 1999 to pursue his passion for snowboarding he took up fly fishing. It wasn’t long before he got the bug, literally! Spending the next five summers dedicated to exploring the waters in the region he learned just how special of a place he was in. It was obvious to Jason that he was meant to become a guide. Many years of working in restaurants as a chef and sommelier have taught Jason what high end customer service was all about. Combining Jason’s passion for fishing and the outdoors with his excellent customer service skills made for an easy transition onto the river providing a first class angling experience . Now he is honored and privileged to be the owner of Jackson Hole Fishing Adventures & a fly fishing professional in big, wonderful, Wyoming!
