Captain Bill’s Fishing Academy

Dream Team of Accomplished Anglers to Teach Top Fishing Skills

TAMPA, Fla. – When it comes to fishing, the only thing Capt. Bill Miller enjoys more than expanding his endless quest for knowledge is sharing what he has learned with others. That’s the simple, yet sincere premise behind Capt. Bill’s new “Legends Fishing Academy” slated for March 28, 2015 at Tampa Fishing Outfitters, located at 3916 W. Osborne Ave., Tampa, Fl. 33614.

A third-generation Tampa native with over 40 years in the sport-fishing industry, Capt. Bill As a multi-media fishing celebrity, he has shared his angling acumen through cable TV, newspaper columns, magazine articles, an instructional book and most recently, his World Fishing Network show, “Fishing with Bill Miller.” Now, Capt. Bill wants to pass along some of his top tips for fishing success in the more intimate setting of a space-limited seminar.

“I’ve been very fortunate to enjoy a lifetime on the water and I am very thankful for the opportunity to develop my skills and learn through doing,” Capt. Bill said. “Now, I have a great interest in helping other anglers advance their own understanding and skill level by tapping into what I’ve experienced.”

With a full day of learning from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., Capt. Bill will offer a limited-capacity seminar aimed at reaching past the obvious and delving deeper into the sport’s finer points. The fee-based program promises rich, vivid descriptions of the fishing experience with the in-depth how-to lessons that will equip seminar guests to enjoy their own rod-bending fun.

An established angling authority, Miller brings a multimedia pedigree anchored by 16 years as host of the popular cable TV show, “Hooked on Fishing.” Miller’s also a weekly columnist for the Tampa Tribune/, a featured celebrity writer for various special event publications and the author of FISH SMART – CATCH MORE! – a user-friendly instructional book with 107 tips for better Florida fishing.

World Fishing Network is the only fishing network solely dedicated to the angling lifestyle. WFN and WFN HD are available to more than 50 million cable, satellite and telecommunications households throughout the United States, Canada and the Caribbean.
