Fishing with Nick has been one of my favorite trips to date. He was a joy to be around and really taught us a lot about fishing Trout. God willing i hope to fish with him a lot more in the future.

Nick is a hell of a guide. He puts a lot of emphasis and effort in teaching his clients. He knows the bay extremely well and works tirelessly to make your day a success. I can't recommend him enough.
