Nick Jackson is a true fly fishing trout bum. Born in Park City, Nick was exposed at a young age to fly fishing in Alaska on a guided trip. That trip proved to be life changing. Nick at once wanted to be a fly fishing guide and spend his time chasing fish all over the world.
Nick has been guiding full time for several years now and has been splitting his time between Alaska, Chile, Central America and Utah. Recently after a guided trip to Pyramid Lake he abandoned the summer to summer migrations to spend his winters chasing the world's largest cutthroat trout.
Nick spends time guiding at Pyramid Lake, working at the Reno Fly Shop and teaching clinics at the Lake. I got to sit down with Nick and chat about his fly fishing experience, why he has chosen Pyramid Lake and what sort of techniques and setups he likes while fishing the Lake.
