One of the most well recognized franchises in outdoors television is about to get a facelift. Perennial host John Barrett is passing the torch to the next generation of fly fishermen and who better to carry that flame than Conway Bowman…a man who has been known to land 200 pound mako sharks from a paddleboard! Although he’s recognized for these pioneering efforts to catch mako sharks off the Southern California coast, deep down Conway is a man who simply likes to catch fish, and the fly rod just happens to be his weapon of choice. Join Conway as he circles the globes in search of the stories, legends and, of course, big fish!
Conway Bowman’s name is synonymous with “extreme” fly fishing. For Conway, home base is San Diego, where he guides for blue water species on the fly – most notably killer mako sharks. He is the TV host of “ Fly-Fishing the World” and “The Outfitters” on Sportsman Channel. Conway is also the author of “The Orvis Guide to beginning saltwater fly fishing.” Bowman has traveled the world in search of Atlantic salmon, wild trout, Redfish, bonefish, and tarpon.
