By Nash Tackle

This week the podcast welcomes the enigmatic, charismatic Northern Angling Show director and now new Nash Product Innovations Manager Nick ‘Reedy” Maddix.

Wherever Reedy is or whatever he’s involved in there’s sure to be energy, enthusiasm and plenty of laughs, this podcast is certainly no different.

Reedy talks through his early years fishing around his home town of Bedfordshire and how this led to him studying fishery management at Shuttleworth College where none other than Alan Blair was his lecturer! Through this he made his way to bailiff on Cavagnac Kevin Nash’s France fishery where he was thrown in at the deep end for sure with let’s just say some humorous “mixed” results.

A fact most people won’t know is that Reedy joined Nash working in the warehouse and later in the media/marketing department before Alan Blair joined the company. He talks through his Nash years and why ultimately he left before forming the Northern Angling Show dream team with friends Lee Spence and Jamie Clossick.

As angling shows go The Northern Angling Show is considered by many as one of if not the very best of UK carp based shows. Reedy talks about the birth of the show as well as more then a few stories about how the concept and show progressed. Look of for a few top tales including shoplifting, Jamie Clossick and a fire hydrant as well as Reedy’s magic ruler.

On to foreign fishing adventures and Reedy talks through an epic if not relatively uneasy session on Luke Moffats Graviers Fishery in France where ultimately after battling against some tough conditions he managed to bank the once world record carp "Scar" at a whopping 92lbs+. He also recalls epic sessions back fishing with his dad on Rainbow and talks about his hopeful plans to head back out to the continent in search of big carp.

Finally Reedy talks about his decision to come back to join Nash and what he plans on bringing to the UK Product Innovation Manager position.

One things for sure you can’t fail to be entertained by Reedy but behind his charm and personality there’s a seriously talented and extremely capable carping mind. Sit back and enjoy the Reedy show.
