Mountain Angler owner Jackson Streit has been fly fishing in Colorado for 50 years and guiding for over 40 years. Since 1970, Jackson has fished in Colorado more than 100 days per year.
After growing up near Beacon, New York, Jackson earned a business degree from Denver University before moving to Breckenridge and starting Summit County’s first guided fly-fishing service “Trout Tours” in 1977. Jackson went on to open Mountain Angler a few years later in 1985.
Jackson is the author of “No Nonsense Guide to Fly Fishing in Colorado.” Over the years, Jackson has also written articles for several Colorado publications and been a consultant for various national fly-fishing magazines.
In addition to fly fishing Colorado, Jackson has “wet his line” all over the world, including the steelhead rivers of Washington & Oregon, famous brown trout rivers of New Zealand and salt water destinations of Belize, Mexico, Christmas Island and the Bahamas.
In his free time, Jackson enjoys skiing, golfing, rooting for his favorite Colorado sports teams (Broncos, Rockies, Nuggets and Avalanche) and spending time with his wife Fiona and son Evan.
