Hook, Line and Sinker was established in 1994 as a result of a fishing friendship between two well known Malaysian Anglers, Aziz Daud and Anthony Sullivan. Both Aziz and Anthony and now Jim, who joined the team in 2016, accompany virtually all groups personally, have a great wealth of knowledge on fishing in Malaysia. They have played host to a large number of angling journalists and film crews from around the world and many thousands of overseas anglers.
Please be careful. There are many unscrupulous agents who claim to be the best, were the founders of Rompin Sailfishing, however, many are just middlemen who do not accompany groups. They just arrange and someone will take you fishing. We accompany all groups, and we were the pioneers of Rompin Sailfishing. We have been in Rompin now since 1994. We are professional.
