    Jako Lucas
          Jako, is not only a filmmaker and photographer but he has been guiding professionally since 2006. Born and raised in Johannesburg, South Africa, he completed his B.Com in Marketing from the University of Johannesburg. During his formative years he spent many weekends cultivating his skills, which led to his decision to pursue fishing as a professional career.
          His move to London, UK, saw him start his fishing career at the
prestigious Farlows of Pall Mall, where he continued fishing many of the UK fisheries. Furthermore he worked at Sportfish – participating in various fishing shows including The CLA Game Fair. Some Jako's extraordinary filming/photography/guiding locations include: Mongolia, Norway, Seychelles, Cosmoledo, Providence, Astove, Assumption, Farquhar, St Brandon's, Lesotho, Zambezi River, Bolivia, Cuba, Russia, Argentina, Siberia, USA, South Africa, Costa Rica, Mexico, Gabon.
          As a professional guide and international flyfisherman, I am very selective and proud to be representing companies that I can truly rely on, not only in the field, but at home as well. They are truly the best of the best, and the one thing that I really appreciate about all of them is that they always ask and seem to value my honest feedback on all of the products that I use. I am really fortunate to have Simms Fishing support me and having them really look after all of my needs."
