Paul has been fishing since he was 5 years old with his father as his mentor. As a result, he loves wild oceans which he came to know and understand in South Africa where he grew up. His love of nature and his explorative character are always pushing him to discover new fishing destinations whenever the opportunity arises.
Paul has fished and sailed all over the world, including the West African coast, Central America, Caribbean, Pacific ocean, Ireland and Italy. His love of Africa has brought him back numerous times and it's safe to say he's an honorary local in Gabon, São Tomé & Príncipe, Guinea Bissau, Liberia, and Sierra Leone. He is passionate about marine conservation and preserving the oceans for future generations, values he's passing onto his children also.
Paul has an unrivalled passion for travelling and fishing and is always keen to share this with friends, old and new. If you get him started, beware, it's hard to get him to stop!
Paul has a commercial skipper’s license and is an IGFA-registered captain. Since 2017 he is also an Orvis endorsed fly-fishing guide. He completed the Royal Geographical Society course on Travel and Exploration in 2013 and is always up to date on the St John’s Ambulance First Aid course, so you know you're always in safe hands.
