Capt Bill has been Game fishing all his life, and professionally sport fishing for 28 years, runningMarlin fishing charters, sport fishing charters and exclusive Bluewater fly fishingcharters, and one of the few owner operators in the industry.
Starting as a crewmen on Australia's top Marlin boats and now recognised himself as Australia's No 1 sport fishing and game fishing boat Captain.
This statement can be verified by his results of the past 10 years.
No other Australian Captain comes close to his
tournament achievements, as one example Capt Bill and his boats Viking
and Viking II have won the prestigious Lizard Island Black Marlin
Classic 4 times and runners up just as many. The largest
tournament in the Southern-Hemisphere, the New South Wales interclub
tournament, has also been won by Captain Bill 4 times. The largest Game
fish ever to be caught on saltwater fly a incredable 289lb blue marlin
on 20lb tippet was caught on Viking 11 with Bill as captain as well as
the largest striped marlin on fly 231lb on 16lb tippet.
He is consistently in the top
placing on all tournaments from Cairns to Sydney. His list of Marlin
captures for his clients is outstanding, including 10 one thousand
pound marlin weighed, two over one thousand two hundred pounds. He is
conservative in saying that he has tagged
& released another 30 marlin over a thousand pound,
between Cairns and Lizard Island. In 2002 and 2003 Viking II
amazed the rest of the Cairns Fleet by consecutively catching over 100
fish for the Giant Black Marlin season, rarely done before. (101 &
105) he is consistently in the top few boats for most fish caught for
the season, and topped the fleet again in the most recent 2007 season.
Capt Bill's diversity in fishing excells with Bluewater fly fishing.
Two of the most famous world records were caught off Viking II., with
Billson as Captain. His Fly-fishing records include the
largest fish ever caught on fly (289lb blue marlin on 20lb
tippet) the largest striped marlin ever caught on fly ( 231lb
striped marlin on 16lb ) and a 151lb black marlin also on 16lb. So you
