Nic is our young casual grommet that started with us back when he was 16. Instead of doing what most teenage boys his age are doing i.e chasing girls, Nic spends a lot of his time out on the river chasing bream and flathead on lures. He also gets out on the family boat, jigging for demersal species out of Jurien Bay. He also heads north targeting bottom fish during the school holidays. Nic generally spends all his wage within the stores testing out new lures so he is right up to date with the latest gear.
