Bill Klyn hails from Jackson Hole, WY, about as far as possible from saltwater. Having been 32 years in the fishing business, he was drawn to saltwater angling back in 1987 with his first foray into Biscayne Bay with Capt. Bill Curtis that made him a “bonefish junkie.”

Bill saw the challenges that saltwater game fish and habitat were going through. It was at one of the RBFF Board Meetings that he was introduced to the fledgling organization, Bonefish & Tarpon Trust.  His 20 years with Patagonia, the outdoor gear and apparel manufacturer, has allowed him to support a number of fresh and saltwater grassroots groups, including Bonefish & Tarpon Trust.

Belize and the Yucatan are the places for true Grand Slam opportunities. Years ago, our vagabond gang of six stayed at the El Pescador Lodge (under different ownership) and two of us caught all the slam members (tarpon, bonefish, permit), but not in the same day.
