“A true angler has respect for the water... don't you forget that.”
— Willy

Willy is a villager who grew up traveling among the Fern Islands and now lives south of Pelican Town on The Beach. He sells bait and fishing supplies in his shop. His shop is open every day, but will be closed on Saturday if the weather is nice enough for him to go fishing.

Relationships

Willy spends most of his time fishing just outside his shop when not operating the sale counters at his shop. He's often seen at the saloon in evenings, especially during the winter. He lives right next to Elliott, the two of them are the only residents of the beach.
