Born in 1982 into a South African fishing family created the love and passion that I have today for fishing. Needless to say, that I started fishing at a very young age, which I have my late father John Williamson to thank for. My father John started a company called Williamson Lures back in the 70’s that manufactured lures. I got to spend many happy days by his side either on the boat or in the factory nurturing my passion for fishing.
I’ve been fortunate enough to travel to many great fishing destinations such as Australia, New Zealand, USA, Mozambique, Mexico, Cape Verde and our South African coastline. Having fished all facets of fishing whilst travelling my true calling has always been marlin fishing.
I have run both charter boats and commercial fishing boats along our coast line through to Mozambique for many years now as well as I started my own lure company called Pulsator Lures in 2005, following in my father’s footsteps.
Over the past few years I have found myself on Cape Verde waters frequently in chase of the great marlin fishery the island has to offer. It’s a destination that fulfils my marlin fishing passion, my need to be out on the big blue where I get to test new lure designs, fish till my heart is content and meet some like-minded folk.
