Episode Show Notes

Published May 7th, 2020


Today Matt hosted one of his long time buddies, Nick Smith, the Informative Fisherman. Nick is widely regarded as the top fishing instructor on YouTube. His show the Informative Fishermen has over 126K subscribers!

Over the years Nick has solidified his position within his industry as a celebrity personality, influencer, featured presenter, rod designer and more.

An avid fisherman his whole life, listen as Nick recounts his unusually lucky start with YouTube and how he started his business 12 years ago.

Nick and Matt discuss the back end of the Youtube culture and Nick clears up many of the myths associated with it. “Clickbait”? Yeah, he discusses that too and why it leaves a black eye on everyone involved.

Nick is very fortunate to have his dad as his side kick for almost every episode as well. This fathers/son film team has racked up the accolades over the years and and his videos are “must see” internet TV.
