Jonathan D. Williams
Jon was born in St. Augustine, Florida, in 1989 and lived in Florida until 1997, then moved to Cypress, Texas. His fondest memory and passion for fishing started at a young age when his father, David, chartered a deep-sea fishing boat from Surfside Beach, Galveston, Texas. After a grueling 70-mile trip into the Gulf, Jon used a large conventional fishing pole. With his father’s assistance, he cast only to find himself fighting a near 50 pound kingfish instantly. Kingfish! After pulling the massive Kingfish from the deep blue Gulf of Mexico, Jon’s love for fishing started.
Over the years, Jon mostly grew up conventional fishing small creeks, rivers, and Texas lakes. In 2010, Jon joined the United States Army as an Infantryman. This role has taken him all over the world, and he currently resides in Tennessee.
Here Jon discovered the beautiful rivers, creeks, and vast watersheds of Tennessee and was drawn into the alluring art of fly fishing. His newfound passion is finding himself lost on the back roads of Tennessee and Kentucky fly fishing in the tributaries and tailwaters of the Cumberland River, targeting the beautiful trout and his favorite species, the smallmouth bass. Jon is currently transitioning out of the Army to start his own outfitters, guide service, and fly shop in Tennessee.
