Luke Nichols: Early Years

Luke was born in 1978 in Anchorage, Alaska, United States to father Melvin R. Nichols and mother Sharon Nichols. He was brought up in Anchorage alongside his elder brother, Dan, and both of them developed a knack for fishing watching their grandfather and father. This continued and grew even stronger during his teenage years when he used to hunt upland game birds like quails, ducks, sandhill cranes, ptarmigans, and grouse in Alaska.

Luke later in life moved to Utah where he lived for six years only to realize that hunting and fishing was not as exciting as it was in Alaska. However, his search for the perfect place continued when he found a place where he cultivated his one true passion. But after some time he left Utah for Virginia where he started fishing yet again.

As a teenager, the attorney wanted to become a professional wood carver with a specialization in native Alaskan totemic art. He even used to design totem poles, paddles, etc which he also used to sell to fetch some money for himself.
