About Me

 “I fish because I love to... because I love the environment where fish are found... because I love the challenge and continuous learning that is required to effectively catch fish... the techniques, the methods, reading water, and constant research that is required to be successful. I love the rush that you get when a fish is on the other end of your line, and finally, not because I think fishing is incredibly important... but because I think so many of the other concerns in life are equally unimportant––and not nearly so much fun!”   - Jeremy Koch




I'm Jeremy Koch, an avid angler and outdoor enthusiast. I have been fishing since I was a child, but my passion for fishing really took off in 2004 when I started fishing for Salmon and Steelhead. Since then I have spent countless hours in the great outdoors learning to harvest the fish and wild game of the Pacific Northwest.

Not only do I love to fish and hunt, I also love teaching and sharing my knowledge to help others harvest fish and game of their own. I get as much enjoyment out of helping someone catch a fish as I do catching one myself.

I started Spartan Fishing in August  2013 as a way to share my knowledge and experiences with others. I wanted a way to post tutorials, gear reviews, fishing reports, and to share information and pictures from my outdoor adventures as I head toward my goal of ultimately becoming a full time professional fishing guide.

I chose the name Spartan Fishing, because the ancient warriors of Sparta dedicated their lives to their trade.... they made military training and excellence their lifestyle. I can relate to this, not only as a veteran of the United States Marine Corps that has deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan, but also because I view fishing not only as a hobby, but as a lifestyle.


“Behold, I am sending for many fishers, declares the LORD, and they shall catch them. And afterward I will send for many hunters, and they shall hunt them from every mountain and every hill, and out of the clefts of the rocks." - Jeremiah 16:16
