Podcast #0014 – Ryan Nitz

Turning His Passion Into His Profession - Hunting, Fishing, Outdoor Film Making



Ryan Nitz is a 27 year old with a passion for the outdoors that is contagious and immediately obvious to anyone who is fortunate enough to be around him even for a few minutes.  For the past few years he has been funding his outdoor addiction with a well paying job in Florida pest control.  However, with his growing Instagram profile, he has had many opportunities to turn his   passion into his profession.

Recently Ryan quit his job, bought a boat, took a job as a turkey hunting guide and enrolled in Sea School to earn his Captains License through the US Coast Guard.  He has burned the boats and there is no going back.  

Two years ago, Tom Rowland contacted Ryan after being introduced to him through mutual friend David McLeaf.  Soon the entire crew of Saltwater Experience were on their way to film with Ryan for the mega large snook that he catches.  The show turned out nicely and it became one of the most popular Saltwater Experience episodes ever.  Fans loved the story of this young man pursuing his passion and emails continue to pour in about Ryan Nitz.

Join in on this conversation about hunting, fishing, outdoor film making and much more.
