About Us

Thank you for taking the time to visit our about us page. My name is Jason Downs and I created Fishtackly to share my fishing experience and knowledge with others with the aim to help, and hopefully get more people involved and educated in this fantastic hobby.

about us picture

I first starting fishing when I was a kid, my father has been an avid fisherman most of his life and started taking me along when I was 7 years old, and I have been fishing ever since (and completely addicted to it), though I don’t get to go as much as I would like to these days with life and family responsibilities.

I have tried tons of different styles of fishing over the years from spinning, carp fishing, fly fishing to deep sea fishing. I look at each trip as a mini adventure, as you never know how the day is going to play out, especially with deep sea fishing!

The popularity of fishing has grown a bunch over the years, and it’s great to see the younger generations getting more involved in our great hobby.

Things have changed a lot over the years, but I am a firm believer that the basics still work very well and my own fishing experiences prove this as I like to keep things as simple as possible and have a great time.

I have rambled on too much already, but thanks again for checking out my about page, and if you want to reach out to me then you can contact me by click here.
