Jason Grupp - Owner / Head Guide / Trip Host

Belize Permit

I began developing my fishing skills when I was a child. I was guiding by high school on a private lake in Orange County California giving bass fishing trips with Fly rod. I just enjoyed taking people fishing and did not realize that it was the start of my career and business. I fished and guided all over the state and country through college. I became an Orvis endorsed guide in 2005. I placed 2nd in the "Orvis Endorsed Guide Olympics Casting Competition" in Wyoming in 2007. I have done some tournament fishing, but my true passion is to guide and host my clients on trips to destinations like Belize, Mexico and a few others.

I look forward to working with all of you!
