Trevor is our angler in the field - the effectiveness of our lures are well and truly put to the test under the skilled handling and angling ability of Trevor.
An avid fisherman since childhood and a fully licensed and certified charter captain as well as having a commercial captains ticket for vessels up to 25 meters, and have over 30 years experience at sea.
Began competitive fishing in the 80’s and have represented my state (Eastern Province) on many occasions in various fishing disciplines, but mostly game fishing. Have represented my country (Protea Team) at various international game fishing tournaments on no less than 6 occasions, most of them as captain of the team.
Having fished for billfish at many of the major destinations around the world, including some of the most remote,(Ghana, Mauritius, Seychelles, Mozambique, Thailand, Azores, St Helena, Ascension, Grenadines, Hawaii, Puerto Rico) I have been fortunate to see many different techniques from across the globe.
As a long standing IGFA member and tournament angler, I have an intimate knowledge of the IGFA regulations and have numerous South African, All Africa and World Records to my name, in different facets of fishing including fly-fishing and light tackle. I have captained many a team to the winner’s rostrum as well as winning numerous marlin and game fishing tournaments and recently became the first and only South African to achieve the "Billfish Royal Slam" recognized by IGFA for capturing all 9 billfish species of the world.
We have been fishing this section of coastline since 1992 and have for the past five years concentrated on fishing "Reel Magic" from Richards Bay. I have excellent knowledge of the area and have travelled extensively in search of good fishing for billfish. My travels have brought me back to Richards Bay because of its abundant billfish. It is definitely a world-class destination for billfish and gamefish.
It would be my pleasure to help you achieve whatever goal you choose on a fishing outing with me.
Trevor's Terror by BigTLures:
Featured in the photo to the left is the lure that has been named in tribute to Trevor for his thorough testing and of our new and exciting range of marlin lures which are currently being manufactured by BigTLures.
We have the perfect collaboration with Trevor as he is able to test-proof the lures in marlin rich waters, fishing off a magnificent sport fishing boat - Reel Magic, in Richards Bay, South Africa.
