About Me


Hello! My name is Jon. I created ChestDeep.com to share my experiences and thoughts on fly fishing and hunting gear. Whether it’s chest waders or even helping you find the right pair of insulated socks. I hope my recommendations are able to help you make a smart decision on your next purchase.

I have been passionate about the outdoors since I was old enough to walk in the woods with my dad. I am an avid duck hunter and mediocre fly fisherman. I am a family man from the Midwest with roots in the steelhead streams of Indiana and the trout rivers of Colorado.

Growing up, I learned early on the importance of good gear and just how true the adage is “you get what you pay for”. Throughout my outdoor hunting and fishing experiences I have used both high quality waders, and also waders that left my feet wet, cold, and wanting more. I’ve created a handful of guides to help you wade through all of the choices, and to provide my thoughts and recommendations on particular products, hopefully saving you lots of time and money.

Feel free to visit the ChestDeep.com homepage for a list of my best gear guides, as well as useful informational articles. I hope you enjoy the content on my site, and feel free to share with your friends and family. Who knows, you just might be able to hint to them about what you want for your birthday or Christmas! Enjoy my site, and I’ll help you stay dry while chest deep.
