Northern Traditions Podcast e.p. 16 Nick Di Francesco



On this episode Travis talks with Nick Di Francesco of Blackwater Bushcraft. Nick was born and raised in Ontario, Canada. He got a kick start into the outdoors by working for the world renowned guiding company Red Lake Outfitters. Nick credits many of his skill and comfort in the woods to his time working as a guide in northern Ontario. Since his time there, he has been ever expanding his skills in the back country. He enjoys the woods through canoe trips and trips where he brings just minimal gear. His attitude is on point and is a humble man for how much he truly does know. We hope that you can hear the love of the woods this guy has when he talks, and that you can implement that same attitude in your own forests. Nick is a true ambassador for the woods and we truly appreciate him for coming on the show.
