Nick joined the Fish Tales team in 2016. He is a young guy with an old soul and has been dubbed "Old Man Nick" by his workmates. His calm demeanor and welcoming approach is appreciated by all those who get to know him.
Nick's recent weakness has been his pursuit of steelhead. B.C.'s North continues to beckon his return and he visits the region a couple times per year.
