I only had 8 hours with Nick and I must say there wasn't a dull moment. We hit up the action on the beach with no luck. So we went and fished the mangroves for a few hours. I landed all my tarpon, bass and there were more than a handful that got away. Nick helped me with my casting... More

I fished 2 days with Nick recently and had a fantastic time… For any flyfisher coming on holiday to Mexico you cannot beat the experience of catching a bonefish or a big tarpon. Every fisherman dreams of big fish and my dream came true when I hooked into something that could only be described as a 'enormous'. We fought it... More

Met up with Nick for several hours off the cruise ship last week. I had such a wonderful time and Nick is such a personable and friendly guy. Really a great teacher and loves what he does. Shoot, I'd love it too! Fishing, teaching how to fish, talking about fishing, and all on the beach?! That's the life, my friends...... More

I fished with Nick 3 years ago while on a cruise stop. I caught a bonefish and a variety of other fish while wading in Mahahual. This time I returned for a week and Nick took me for tarpon on the fly. I landed 20 tarpon, 2 bass and a snook. I am obviously thrilled with the results but that... More

My friend and I booked a fishing excursion with Nick during a recent cruise ship visit. Although we booked as his only clients I never expected he would keep us fishing almost the whole day. What a great way to spend the day. Best value for the money on the whole trip. Fishing was good, not great but that is... More

Imagine taking your favorite Montana or FL Keys guide with you when you fish a remote destination. That's what fishing with Nick is like. He's THAT good. and you don't have to deal with broken english or spooked fish. I can't recommend him highly enough. Add in some of the world's best Tarpon fishing and what's not to love?

I came across Nick's flyer in Farlows fishing shop, Pall Mall in London. I contacted Nick by email and organised to skype to discuss fishing options for a one week trip in Mexico. I immediately knew I was in good hands. Once I got the flights (£550) we built the trip around my budget (no need for a posh hotel... More

A bit of a mix-up meeting up with Nick by which time we didn't even have enough money on us for the fishing! But Nick didn't mind and was happy with slightly reduced rate (must be coz we are fellow Brits!). We skipped making the actual flies and got straight into casting lessons and then waded out into the sea... More

I found this tour on Tripadvisor and because of the ratings and comments we booked it. Well I only wish there was more dots past excellent! Nick was fantastic! The school was fantastic. The location was beautiful! We will be back! Before WCFFS, Costa Maya was usually a wasted stop. Now, we are looking at ways to return. We have... More

Although we never really got to fish with Nick (weather and wind) he is the greatest. We drove down from Cancun our car battery died our 1st night Nick was a savior he took us to his home picked up his van and got our car running. He introduced us to many local people and kept us entertained and amazed.... More
