A native Texan and former Wall Street financial advisor, Jeff Troutman now hosts his own fly fishing podcast and blog, Remote No Pressure, where he tells great fly fishing stories and interviews fascinating individuals from all over the country – including the president of Scientific Anglers, a TEDx speaker, and a United States Coast Guard Captain.
Troutman recently released his first album, Songs About Fly Fishing, which is a culmination of his musical talents and love of fishing.
Troutman’s musical career began with tragedy as a car accident sidelined his burgeoning middle-school baseball career. Homebound, he learned to play the guitar and sing, finding a new love in music. The native Texan draws his inspiration from Lone Star legends such as Robert Earl Keen, Josh Abbott Band, Pat Green, and Willie Nelson. Troutman is also a former member of the early 2000’s band, Parts Unknown.
Troutman began working in a high-pressure Wall Street job and sought an escape from the stress of the corporate world. He headed to mother nature for refuge and signed up for a fly fishing group. Troutman immediately fell in love with the sport and believes his two passions, music and fly fishing, mesh perfectly together and are connected on a spiritual level. He is now on a mission to share his world of music and fly fishing with others.
In addition to his creative pursuits, Troutman is a proud husband and father. His ideas of family, spirituality, and the great outdoors are reflected in his music, which he hopes to inspire others in the world of fly fishing.
