Through the eyes of a seasoned Alaskan guide, Jon Baker’s Guide 4 Adventure (JBG4A) focuses on Alaska and other special episodes in the lower 48 states and abroad. Inspiration for JBG4A came after a real life “I shouldn’t be alive” experience. Jon’s story and belief that life is too short to spend doing anything but what you love is what drives his passion. Breaking the mold of conventional fishing television while simultaneously telling great stories with beautiful footage filmed entirely in bucket list locations will not leave viewers disappointed!

Brad Bonnett was first introduced to fly fishing at the age of 11 by a video his grandfather gave him. He watched the tape obsessively – until it finally wore out. His grandfather’s gift inspired Brad to become the professional guide and fisherman he is today. In 2006, Brad’s calling and quest took him to southwest Alaska as a guide. Currently General Manager of one of Alaska’s premier lodges, Brad comes to the program with more than two decades of on-the-river fly fishing experience from all over the United States.
