Jesse Lance Robbins was born and raised in rural, mid-coast Maine. He graduated from Bates College in 2006.
I caught my first trout at the age of six. When excited and proud Dad then asked me what I thought about that, I replied, straight faced, "I wanna catch another one." Twenty years later, I netted the first trout after six fish-less hours for a client who had never touched a fly rod before. I slapped him on the back and asked him what he thought about that, and he responded with the same answer. I guess I had that coming.
Spent some time doing that corporate thing after college and been ramblin' around since then, trying to figure it all out. Here's what I've narrowed it down to so far: family, friends, soul, love, environs, new places, new faces. Fishing.
