Nicky’s been addicted to fishing since she was a sprat herself, with the last nine years having been the host of the most successful female-hosted television fishing show in Australasia - Addicted to Fishing. The show brings in audiences every week with Nicky’s fishing adventures taking local kiwis out on the water to celebrate everything fishing. More lately, Nicky has moved away from being in front of the camera to her biggest role yet, being a mum.
Mangawhai based, Nicky still manages to get out on the water [if not as much as she used to], and is honing in on her 30 odd years of experimenting and creating catch to cook recipes, to now share with her audiences. A life-long passion for seafood, Nicky’s recipes are based on fresh new flavours that are easy to make and with a real-wow-factor. If it hasn’t been caught herself, she is very conscious of sourcing the most sustainably caught seafood available, and with 2 year old Oscar being her biggest food critic, Nicky’s recipes are created for the whole family to enjoy.
Fishing, diving and boating from Mangawhai’s coastline is what it’s all about and Nicky is loving sharing them with her young family.
"Watching little Oscar become a keen fisherperson is an absolute delight", and although Nicky has hung up the camera for the time being, she is absolutely loving her new direction in providing her captive audiences with mouth-watering yet simple recipes, “fishing is all about sharing and getting creative with seafood and designing recipes with fresh, local produce - which is my passion right next to catching fish”.
