Jodie Styron and Tom Bragg had one of the more sought after commercial hunting operations on Portsmouth Island. They grew up and lived together in the old Bragg house on Doctor's Creek. Jodie married Tom's sister, Anne and they operated the Bragg/Styron Hunting Lodge out of their home. The Portsmouth Island decoys from the Jodie Styron/Tom Bragg stand are some of the more desirable decoys from North Carolina.
