David Wilmot

David grew up fishing with his father chasing a wide variety of fish, from peacock bass in the Amazon to all the game fish species South Africa has to offer. He is especially passionate about billfish and has spent the last five years fishing for them exclusively.  David will always make sure the client’s needs are met and is happy to pass down any knowledge he has learned over the last fourteen years of fishing.

Luke Outram

Luke Outram hails from South Africa and was born and raised in Port Elizabeth. He grew up fishing in the waters of the eastern cape from the age of 8 and so has a huge amount of experience in fishing rock, surf and deep sea offshore. His enthusiasm and energy is second to none and in the short time he has been with us, he has managed to work out the fishing off Fujairah and put his customers onto some good fish daily. A great young captain and angler with a wealth of knowledge and stories to share, he strives to ensure that his clients master the varying fishing techniques on every trip. Luke is a passionate young captain holding all the required licenses and Skipper qualifications.

Dylan Van Breda

Dylan grew up fishing the waters of the Eastern Cape catching anything that would eat a bait, lure or fly. His passion for fishing was passed down at a young age from fishing with his father who taught him the tricks over the years. Artificial and top water lures are his specialty and he loves targeting all gamefish with his wide knowledge of surface lures and presentation. Dylan holds all the required qualifications and his passion for this sport is highly addictive.

Ricky Bamber

Ricky Bamber comes from Durban and is the latest addition to join the Team Soolyman and has over 10 years deep sea fishing experience fishing all along the South African coast for various species of fish.
The ocean is where he feels the most comfortable and his favourite form of fishing is jigging using artificial lures, drop shot and poppers. He is very passionate about angling so he ensures that his customers are given 100% attention during the trip and he likes to pass on his information and educate newcomers about our exciting sport. Ricky also holds all the required qualifications and is fast becoming a regularly requested captain with our Soolyman clients.
