Owen aka bush billy aka Capt Owen #CaptOwen #NZ_Kings is Epic’s most well-known skipper. Sharp-witted and intensely focused on getting results. Owen’s armed with an arsenal of one-liners that encourage you to “get a wind on” and help you see the funny side of being slammed against the rail on a big Kingy. All this together, coupled with the fact Owen skippers the most advanced Senator in the fleet, makes a trip out with Owen an unbeatable adventure.
Owen started out with Epic as a land-based specialist and when the chance came up to get out on a boat the opportunity was quickly snapped up. Owen’s skills and take-action style off the rocks quickly converted to results on the boat, producing wicked trips and big fish for his clients with great knowledge on both sides of the Coromandel. if you are lucky enough to be on one of Owens’ trips…. buckle up you’re in for a good time.
