Brian Metry

a.k.a "Fish Junkie"

  • Brian Metry is a new breed of bass angler combining fishing knowledge with business saavy.

    "What the heck am I going to do?" That was the question Jack-It Products Founder Brian Metry kept asking himself over and over after he lost all his Chrysler service provider contracts during the automotive industry collapse a few years ago. Brian's passion for tournament Bass fishing along with a long time desire to get in the fishing products market sparked an idea that would hopefully make his dreams come true.

    Brian started Jack-It Products in January of 2011. The goal is to carry high end lures at a reasonable price. He also knew it was time to clamp down and become a better, smarter tournament angler so he could market Jack-It Products superior "Pro Series Lures".

    2012 proved to be a successful Bass Tournament season for Brian. Cranking a Jack-it Products Hydronic, Brian led the Bassmaster Northern Open on Lake St Clair the first 2 days and ultimately ended up in 4th place in the event. When the FLW Tour Open came to the Detroit River in August, Brian was throwing a Jerk Money 120-SS. After day one Brian was in 5th place and ended up 38th overall amongst some very good pro anglers.

    "I feel like I am definitely maturing as an angler with a dual purpose and that is to not only place inside the money cut but to showcase my lures while doing so." says Brian.

    It's honesty, hard work and dedication that drives Brian's fishing career. When he's not fishing competitively for bass he is just plain Fishin'. It doesn't matter what type because he loves it all. From drifting for walleye with his dad to ice fishing for lakers at his cabin to fly fishing in the fall for salmon - Brian just can't get enough. That's why when it comes to fishin'...he's just a Junkie!
