Captain Bly was born in the Azores and has loved fishing as long as he can remember. As a young boy he would go fishing with his family as often as possible as this was his time to bond with them. He's been boating since 1978 starting with a small sailboat his sister won in a drawing.
He takes his Captain's name from his mother and it serves him well as a remembrance of how much his mother loved the water. Patsy Jean Bly passed one year to the day prior to purchasing her, a 2008 197 Pioneer Sport Fish, and the name instantly was realized. The Patsy Jean looks after the Captain every time he goes out whether it's a short fishing trip in the creek, or across the harbor in rough tides, or a nearshore trip out the jetties. His mother ensures he and all his passengers stay safe every time they venture out on her.
