Jason started fishing when his Grandfather “Pops” put a rod in his hands when he started walking. They fished the Bayou LaCombe in LA and Jason first understood the importance of the critical details related to life on the water. At ten, Jason was handed his first Fly Rod and Reel, and a passion was ignited. This passion grew in Montana during two summers spent fly fishing in Yellowstone and surrounding areas during college. Jason relocated from his Native Texas to Indianapolis, IN to court his wife Kara. Together they are raising their daughter Avery and son Charlie. Over the years, Jason has been focused on learning the West Fork of the White River. (grateful Kara is supportive of this pursuit) He's been fishing this under appreciated river for the past 15 years in his Hyde Drift Boat. Two Forks was founded on a passion to connect more fishers and outdoor enthusiasts to what Jason believes is the best-kept secret in Central Indiana. Jason also serves as an instructor for the "Sports Fishing" class at Butler University.
Kyle is a natural fisherman having developed a love for water and adventure at a young age. He spent his youth swimming competitively, lifeguarding, scuba diving, and playing outside. While attending Indiana University he found that he’d rather spend all his time fishing and playing rugby than attending lectures at the HYPER. Kyle’s a self taught fly caster that immediately connected with the hobby of fly fishing and turned it into a profession. He’s leveled up his talents over the years by guiding five years in Alaska bouncing around several different rivers in the last frontier, completing advanced guide courses in Montana, and obtaining a Coast Guard Captain’s license just because he can. Kyle’s favorite fish is the smallmouth and the superficial explosion that occurs with a dry fly. You can find him quoting every line of Big Lebowski, training his Pudelpointer Nellie, or reading a good book.
Jon has his B.S. in Fisheries Sciences from the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point and his M.S. in Ecology from Purdue University (obtained at IUPUI in Indianapolis). Jon has worked for the Indiana DNR studying smallmouth habitat on the streams of southern Indiana. In addition, Jon spent a summer working for the National Biological Service tagging and chasing crappie and paddlefish on the Mississippi River in LaCrosse, Wisconsin. He made the transition to computers during his Master's research where he modeled the effects of excess phosphorus flow on fish populations in Midwest reservoirs. Jon now likes to spend his free time floating the river with Wade and Jason identifying sunfish they often catch or explaining the beauty of a good riparian zone. A good float on the river reminds him of his childhood stomping through Sugar Creek in Atterbury Fish and Wildlife Area where he learned the art of fishing a Rebel Crawl.
