Nick grew up on The Grand River in Fergus Ontario and was drawn to fly fishing at the age of 14.  Like so many others, tying flies and fly fishing quickly became a passion and at 15 he began working for the local fly shop where he was mentored by some of the best anglers in the East.  He continued in the business part time through his years at the University of Guelph where he earned his Bachelor of Science Degree.

Currently, Nick has established a career as a project manager for an engineering consulting firm in Fergus, however his passion for fly fishing has brought him to pro staff level with R.L. Winston fly rods, Bauer reels, and Simms. He continues to hone his skills in all aspects of fly fishing and his relaxed style of teaching and guiding make him a sought after instructor for all skill levels. Nick can be contacted for guiding/instruction through Grand River Outfitting and Fly Shop.
