Henry B. Smith, Retired President / CEO Bank of Bermuda

“We’ve been fishing with James for years, and we’re probably as excited as he is that he’s finally running his own show. He’s a great guy who’s fun to fish with – whether I’m entertaining clients or fishing with friends, it’s always an enjoyable day. He’s paid his dues establishing a reputation as the best Mate in Bermuda, and now he’s ready to put all that experience to work as Captain of what I’m sure will quickly become one of the most successful boats in the Island. I’ll never forget watching my son pull in 22 yellowfin tuna fishing with James on my boat a few years ago, and I’ve already booked “Wound Up” for a repeat performance! James knows his way around a boat; he knows safety at sea; and he knows how to catch fish – it’s as simple as that. For my money, that’s pretty much all that matters!”
