Here is what a recent client had to say about his day with me:

“Nick and I learned a great deal from you through the day and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. You have a very relaxed and approachable manner and your instructions and advice are always very clear and to the point. This not only makes you a highly effective and professional guide and teacher, it also means you are delightful company for a day’s fishing and learning. Here’s hoping we can catch up again sometime soon.”
