Billy G. " The Duck Caller" House Fire Relief Fund

Hi this is Captain Merlin Kolb with Reel Magic Sport Fishing in Bodega Bay.

Yesterday 6/7/2021, my good friend Billy Gianquinto lost his home in a devastating house fire that literally left him with only the clothes on his back, and his pick up truck.

If there ever was one, the time is now for you to join Captain Rick Powers of the New Sea Angler out of Bodega Bay, myself, and many others in lifting up and supporting "Billy G".

Billy is a San Francisco & California native son and he has been a resident of Sonoma County since 1973.

In his early years he was a stand-out quarterback with San Francisco State, a Former NCAA Basketball Official, a 10 year Piner HS Head Football Coach (75-85), a duck call inventor and innovator. He was a outdoor television personality with several outdoor shows ("Ducks With Billy & Buck", "Pull" - America's Great Gun Clubs, "The Outdoor Gazette" and "Back County") where he was the host of the show and traveled the world with his Duck Calls, his shot gun, and his Whistle!! In 2011, he was inducted as the 44th member of the California Out Doors Hall of Fame.

Billy G. is a good man who has spent a lifetime serving, teaching, and encouraging others to reach their fullest potential in the outdoors. He has put in his time. Now, he is up against one of the most significant challenges of his life. The time is now, for his team to help get him across the Goal Line.

100% of all funds donated will go directly to Billy G and will be used to help him dust everything off, and set in a new foundation as he charges up the middle, toward his next first down.

I personally thank you in advance for your kind words, your generosity and compassion.

Sincerely, Captain Merlin
