Jonathan (Jonny) is one of the few San Francisco natives you will meet around town. His love for fly fishing started at the early age of 12 years old when he first picked up a fly rod at the Golden Gate Casting Ponds in San Francisco. After graduating college in 2009, he moved back to SF and pursued his passion in fly fishing. He landed a job as a product expert, casting instructor, and fly tying mentor at Leland Fly Fishing Outfitters in Downtown SF. In 2012 he changed careers and now does enterprise business development for a technology company in the Financial District. When Jonny learned about Vayable, he thought this would be the perfect opportunity to connect and share his talent with others again. Full profile ⋅ Leave a Review
