At first, I thought the tweets were jokes about a guy who happened to have the same name. But no, it's ex-IU player Jared Jeffries. And he's hosting a new show for the Outdoor Channel.
For Jared Jeffries, basketball has always come first. But what most people don't know is that Jared is an avid angler with a passion for saltwater fishing. Growing up in Indiana, Jared has always been the most comfortable in the woods or on the water. So when he's away from the court, he usually has rod in hand, and angling for the next big catch.
Jared intends to share angling tips, tricks, and techniques in a fun and informative way. After watching an episode of Modern Fishing, you should be able to walk away with a bit more knowledge under your belt. With trips planned to exotic fishing destinations, and a number of elusive species on his bucket list, Jared’s passion is to share Modern Fishing with the world. If you like to fish, and have a love of sports too, then follow his adventures as he fishes in the Caribbean and across the globe in search of challenges and glory…Game ON!
Yeah, I had no idea either he was an angler either. Color me surprised.
