Derek and Nat have been friends since second grade and have been fishing together for over 25 years. Passionate about fly fishing and saltwater fishing in general they turned their favorite hobby into a business in 1996 when they started First Light Anglers, a full service fly shop and tackle store, located in Rowley, MA. Both received their USCG licenses in 1995 and began running charters and commercially fishing for giant bluefin tuna.
As a result of the resurgence of school tuna in recent years, Derek and Nat have pioneered chasing these fish with fly rods and light tackle. Both Derek and Nat look forward to sharing their knowledge and passion for the waters and fisheries surrounding Cape Ann.
