Former NBA player Jared Jeffries has a fishing show on TV

If you're like me, you've been wondering what former NBA player Jared Jeffries is up to these days. The 11-year veteran who spent time with the Washington Wizards, New York Knicks (twice), Houston Rockets, and Portland Trail Blazers isn't playing in the NBA anymore, but that doesn't mean he's out of the sporting world. 

Jeffries now has a fishing show on the Outdoor Channel. It's called "Modern Fishing with Jared Jeffries" and as you can see in the video above, he's having a whale of a time. The website describes the show as

For Jared Jeffries, basketball has always come first. But what most people don't know is that Jared is an avid angler with a passion for saltwater fishing. Growing up in Indiana, Jared has always been the most comfortable in the woods or on the water. So when he's away from the court, he usually has rod in hand, and angling for the next big catch.

Jared intends to share angling tips, tricks, and techniques in a fun and informative way. After watching an episode of Modern Fishing, you should be able to walk away with a bit more knowledge under your belt. With trips planned to exotic fishing destinations, and a number of elusive species on his bucket list, Jared’s passion is to share Modern Fishing with the world. If you like to fish, and have a love of sports too, then follow his adventures as he fishes in the Caribbean and across the globe in search of challenges and glory…Game ON!

Be sure to catch the show on Outdoor Channel. You won't throw it back. Or maybe you will. I have only seen the video above.
