Capt. Jason Dapra


Capt Jason Dapra has been fly fishing for over 25 years and guiding for the last 11. His guide service, BlitzBound Charters, is based on the New Jersey Shore and Montauk, NY.

During the spring and early summer, you will find Capt Jason running his 23′ Jones Brothers out of Atlantic Highlands, NJ. Capt Jason believes that there is no better area than the NJ Shore in the spring to catch a trophy striper on the fly- he has had 2 clients catch fish over 40 pounds on the fly and countless stripers over 30 pounds.

During the fall, you will find him in Montauk, New York, pursuing false albacore, bluefish and striped bass… Montauk’s fall run is legendary- the huge blitzes and feeding frenzies have to be seen to be believed.

Jason is extremely passionate about not only the sport of fly fishing, but also the “lifestyle” that comes along with it. Fly fishing is not just about catching fish- it’s about enjoying the beautiful places the fish we pursue live in, the camaraderie with fellow fly anglers and, most importantly, the fun of it all – fishing, hanging out at the bar/campfire talking about fishing… It’s all good!

If you don’t see Jason on the ocean, there is a good bet he will be trout fishing on the Upper Delaware river.
