Just realized I hadn't posted here yet, so here is my belated introduction! Name:
Jeff (same as my father, hence the Juniah, this name actually came from my first real full-time job, my father was employed there too so everyone refered to him as Senior and me as Junior! Many of my closest friends that I met while working here still call me that!)Age:
Indianola, WA (tiny town on Liberty Bay directly accross from Seattle, a suburb of Poulsbo/Kingston)Hobbies:
Anything animal related! Hopefully after I get my transplant surgery completed I will be returning to school to complete my degree in biology with the hopes of entering veterinary school at WSU)What You Do:
The majority of my adult life I've worked at hatcheries. Started out with WDFW after getting my degree in Fisheries Technology from Bellingham Technical College, then was headhunted by a private hatchery to manage their fingerling production hatchery. Right now I am on disability because of kidney failure, but am planning on returning to school as mentioned earlier!Favorite Species To Fish ForL
Whatever is biting!! Anything that makes my rod dance or my drag sing makes Jeff a happy boy! From halibut, to flounder, to bass, perch, crappie, or trout, it really doesn't matter, I just love being outside and fishing! (Bonus points if I get to do some camping too!)Where You Fish The Most:
Right now, within 2.5 hour drive of the Poulsbo area. Public/bank access for now until I get a boat!How Long You Have Been Fishing:
I still have a picture of me and my dad with my first fish, a perch from Silver Lake in Cowlitz county, when I was 3 years old! I've been fishing since I could walk, and plan on fishing until after I can't walk anymore!How You Got Introduced To Fishing:
Fishing is a huge part of my dad's side of the family's lifestyle. Most of my father's 6 sibblings, and my grandfather and his brothers enjoy fishing, even if they don't get the opportunity to do so very often.What Do You Do When Your Not Fishing:
Eat and sleep, haha! I dabble in online video games and love camping.
Looking forward to participating in the greatest pacific northwest fishing community on the planet!
