In 2017, Nick founded East Coast Angling, a new outfit to channel his insatiable taste for adventure and guiding.

Nick has been in the charter industry since the age of 18, having started his career on the east coast of Africa skippering various sportfishing and diving boats and lodges between South Africa, Mozambique, Tanzania and Kenya. After exploring the remotest areas of east Africa for 5 years, he decided to head abroad in search of new grounds. He skippered a 46ft power cat across the Atlantic to the BVI where he worked on a few superyachts before finding a new adventure as a game boat skipper aboard a 200ft expedition boat. Chasing world records on fly, he visited 23 countries, circumnavigating the globe in search of possible records. In 2008, Nick met his wife Megan, who lured him back to Australia where he joined and ran a sportfishing operation on the Great Barrier Reef.

Nick founded East Coast Angling to share his intimate knowledge of the area and love of sportfishing. His passion for this sport shows in this new venture, proving that there should be no half measures when it comes to the ultimate experience.
