Bill Boyce Bill Boyce has been active in the angling, conservation and journalistic aspects of sport fishing his entire life. Born and raised in a boating and fishing family in Southern California, he was fortunate to have traveled and fished across the U.S. four times by the age of 14. His love of travel and adventure provided the spark for him to pursue a career in the realm of fisheries. Having graduated in 1979 from Humboldt State University in the coastal redwood empire of Northern California with a B.S. degree in fisheries, his career began with the U.S. Forest Service in Tahoe National Forest. For the next four years he would perform stream habitat analysis and fish population work in Colorado, Alaska and Oregon. In 1982, Bill was hired by the Inter American Tropical Tuna Commission (IATTC) at Scripps Institute of Oceanography in La Jolla, California. For the next 12 years, he worked with tunas, dolphins, billfish, sharks, and other pelagic species, managing their harvest by the Eastern Pacific tuna seine fleet. After 16 years as a biologist, his career was altered by the interest and success his photographs were receiving at shows, art exhibits and in magazines. Now, an internationally renowned photojournalist, his images currently adorn galleries, custom homes and corporate office buildings. Bill’s camera talents have been utilized for the past 18 years in worldwide productions and filming expeditions with Dr. Guy Harvey and the BBC Blue Planet documentary in locations that include Africa, Australia, Azores, Spain, Midway Island, Venezuela, Panama, Mexico, the Canary Islands, Cocos Island, The Bahamas and Belize. In 2002, his career path led him into the world of TV, hosting the World Class Sport Fishing series on The Outdoor Channel, then creating his own production company and directing/producing/hosting the TELLY Award-winning TV series, IGFA Angler’s Digest, which has broadcast on Wild TV, The Sportsman Channel, Fox Sport Net and World Fishing Network. Bill hosts his IGFA Saltwater Adventures series on World Fishing Network and was most recently seen in his newest World Fishing Network original, Bill Boyce’s Baja. Bill returns to World Fishing Network with an all-new series in 2015, Bill Boyce’s Cali. In addition to the media production work, Bill has owned and operated several fishing industry businesses since 1983, including Boyce Custom Rods, William Boyce Photography, Boyce Image LLC and Angler’s Digest Productions. A lifetime of dedication to conservation, Bill has been a long-standing representative of the International Game Fish Association (IGFA) since 1996 and a board member of the National Coalition of Marine Conservation and their WILD OCEANS campaign since 2007.
