Relentless Fly Fishing


Jake Villwock, Owner and Head Guide of Relentless Fly Fishing, has been an industry professional for over 10 years. Growing up in a commercial fishing family on the Eastern Shore of Maryland, fishing has been part of his life from day one - so it should come as no surprise that he has chosen a career in the fishing industry.

After graduating from High Point University with a business degree, Jake worked as a deck hand and fly fishing guide in Sitka, Alaska. He spent the winters dog sledding in both Fairbanks, AK and Deep Creek, MD. Moving back to the east coast in 2009, Jake worked for TCO Fly Shop at the Reading, PA and Bryn Mawr, PA locations. Jake has helped open and manage their newest location in Boiling Springs, PA since March 2016. After 8 years as a retail employee at TCO, Jake has decided to start his own business, Relentless Fly Fishing, who will serve as TCO's contract guide service. 

Jake guides in PA and NY for trout, smallmouth, steelhead, and musky. He knows a network of guides with connections in Ohio, Montana, Michigan, New York, and Alaska should you wish to explore fishing in those regions. 

In addition to guiding, Jake is an Orvis Signature tier, blog-writer, author, fly contributor to Easter Fly Fishing magazine as well as serves on various pro-staffs of leading industry companies such as Thomas and Thomas Rods, Hatch Reels, Scientific Anglers, Simms Fishing, Regal Vises, and Partridge of Redditch.
