Fly Fishing the World's New Host: Conway Bowman

Fly Fishing the World's New Host: Conway Bowman
Conway Bowman is the new host of a completely re-tooled Fly Fishing the World.

Extreme fly fisherman Conway Bowman will be the new host of Fly Fishing the World starting this October. Among Bowman's many accolades, including operating his own fly fishing school, he currently holds the IGFA world record for redfish caught on the fly. He also has several magazine articles to his name, and recently authored The Orvis Guide to Beginning Saltwater Fly Fishing. The new season of Fly Fishing the World begins Saturday, October 8 at 7:30 pm EST and airs exclusively on the Sportsman Channel.


Fly Fishing the World is an exploratory experience. It will venture deep into the soul of fly fishing, where nature rules, and the angler is a mere visitor, hoping to claim a position in the food chain.



Perennial host, John Barrett is passing the torch to Conway Bowman and the next generation of fly fishermen. This season of Fly Fishing the World will not lack for excitement as Bowman circles the globe in search of the prime destinations, legends, and big fish — making for some of the world's best fly fishing.

"I'm thrilled to have the opportunity to host the re-launch of Fly Fishing the World. The re-tooling of this long-running series raises the bar for adventure-angling, and introduces viewers to the eclectic cast of characters an intrepid wanderer meets on a journey through fly fishing's outer realms," said Bowman.


Unforgettable destinations await Bowman as he ventures to Baja, Mexico, where he takes viewers in search of the elusive off-the-beach roosterfish. Bowman also plies Montana's rivers for trout during the biggest flood event in recent memory, explores a unique flats fishery in the Great Lakes and matches wits with ever-wary tailing carp. Bowman also travels to Hawaii to uncover rumors of double-digit bonefish and giant trevally prowling the waters of an uninhabited island.


Fly Fishing the World is one of the longest-running outdoor programs on television and is the only fishing series to ever garner a Cable Ace award. To learn more about Conway and the show, follow him on twitter.com/conwaybowman
