THE SEAHOLM TEAM: JT VAN ZANDT
There are few pioneers. The unsung, they do what they love and turn convention on its head. Years before A River Runs Through It made fly fishing mainstream, JT and a small group of fisherman, headquartered at the fabled Austin Angler, brought fly fishing to Texas. As revolutionary as surfing the mountains of Vermont or skateboarding the drought-stricken pools of LA, the group experimented with flies to catch redfish and seatrout on the flats of the formidable Texas coast. Thirty years later, the Middle Texas Coast is a world-renowned fly fishing destination. JT still brings a revolutionary flair to the trips he leads. Convention is always tested.
Fishing is only one part of JT’s story. Conservationist, father, musician, philosopher, and woodworker, JT has lived a life outside of the ordinary. It is best told in his own words.
And, be sure to catch JT's upcoming podcast series, Drifting.
We are thrilled and honored to have JT as part of the Seaholm family.
