Instead of tracking down enemies in the jungle, nowadays Pro-staff Syafi’e can be found spending his time tracking down the best fishing spots for anglers in Royal Belum where he serve as a fishing guide. A former military officer in the Malaysia Army, he traded his rifle and green military garb in 2016 for fishing rods and fishing wear as he became a professional angler and businessman.
The President of Fishing Buddies Fishing Club since 2015 he is a strong advocate of conservation, performing academic research into Toman Fishing and introducing a fish tagging system in Royal Belum which allows for more in-depth studies to be done, contributing to conservation efforts in the park.
Specializing in long cast, cast accuracy, pitching, skipping and sight casting, he is a bait casting instructor who can be found at Shimano’s Open House and Fishing clinics sharing his experience with anglers. He was the 2nd runner-up when he competed in the 2016 Royal Belum Sport Fishing Challenge.
Due to his military background, Pro-staff Syafi’e loves to engage in various outdoor activities such as sky diving and swimming when he’s not out fishing. He is also a professional scuba diver and a PADI certified dive instructor.
