The Show

Started in 2013, Fish Nerds is a celebration of fish, fishing and eating fish with your hosts Dave Kellam and Clay Groves. The goal of the show is to explore all aspects of fish; highlighting the amazing, inspiring, unusual and funny.


Dave Kellam and Clay Groves are two friends obsessed with fish and best known for their quest in 2011 to catch and eat every kind of freshwater fish in New Hampshire. After catching and eating 48 species of fish and ending their epic quest, the two could not stop talking about their adventures or the fishy people they met along the way. Thus, the podcast was born.  Their style has been described as a cross between NPR’s Car Talk and the Tonight Show Night (Fallon, not Leno).
