WBS Billfishing World Championship

WBS Billfishing World Championship

Since its inception, the the WBS Billfishing World Championship has called forth the elite from all regions to challenge nature and each other for the sport’s ultimate titles, rich winnings and a place in the billfishing Hall of Champions.

Today, that tradition continues through a World Championship event which highlights the finale of the WBS Tour season. Within these blue waters, anglers showcase their ability to compete as an individual against the forces of nature and each other.

There is purity here. The risks are intensified when there is only your angling skills to rely on, but with preparation, a strong performance and a little luck, you will stand above all others as the “WBS World Champion”.
