Welcome to Jim Root Fishing

Things are changing here at Jim Root Fishing, and so we figured it was time for a fresh look on the site as well!  We are traveling a lot!  So far in 2018 we’ve been to Indonesia, Northern Canada, Central Florida, Oregon, Venice, The Smoky Mountains, Cape Cod, and many more!  My new TV Show, Reel Bragging Rights, premieres in January 2019 on The Sportsman Channel!  Check back often to see the updates to the site, and if you have any great fishing locations we should visit, be sure to hit us up in a private message!   Fish on!

I’ve been writing and fishing since I was young, and have my parents to thank for teaching me to do both.  If you have something you’d like to read about, leave me a comment on any blog post requesting it!

Living in Upstate New York allows me to fish some of the most prestigious SMALLMOUTH BASS water in the world!  If you’re looking to land the smallmouth of a lifetime, my articles are must reads!

I never get tired of seeing pictures of big fish.  If you agree you’ll definitely want to check out my Instagram account!. Click here to see it, @jimrootfishing!
