Born and brought up in Newquay, Wayne has a reputation as one of Cornwall’s top angling skippers having won the prestigious Cornish Federation of Sea Anglers top skippers trophy for two consecutive years, the only Newquay skipper ever to win the award and has remained within the top 3 rankings of the annual competition for over 6 years.
Following family tradition stretching over forty years of running fishing trips from Newquay, he is a fully qualified and an experienced skipper holding a RYA Commercially Endorsed Skippers ticket along with First Aid, Fire Fighting and Survival at Sea qualifications, as well as being a member of the Professional Boatman’s Association and a Wildlife Safe Accredited skipper (WISE)
A keen angler from an early age owning his first boat age sixteen, Wayne has worked on boats all his life as a boat builder, commercial fisherman and a charter skipper. Since the purchase of the Mystique he has concentrated his knowledge and skill as a full time charter skipper.
His experience and enthusiasm is second to none and comes from years of teaching and showing people how to catch fish on his trips, where his enjoyment in watching peoples faces when they wind up their catch is one of the reasons he loves and enjoys his job.
From the experienced boat angler to a complete beginner, Wayne will work his hardest to give you a great trip onboard Mystique.
