Conway Bowman
Catching sharks on the fly may seem like an expression, but for Conway Bowman, it’s an accurate description of his day-to-day pursuits. Living in San Diego, CA, he can go just a few miles off shore and find what he’s looking for – Mako sharks. Despite being a big game angler, seasoned fly caster, ambitious outdoorsman, and host of Flyfishing the World, it all comes second to spending time with his favorite fishing companions, his wife and sons.

Q:

What goes through your head when you first wake up in the morning?

A:

When I wake up, every morning, I’m thinking of new ways to approach fishing. I try and think outside the box. Many times, I go the opposite direction just to see what happens.

Q:

Where is your favorite place to fish?

A:

My home waters off San Diego, targeting the shortfin Mako shark on the fly. San Diego is the only place I’ve ever fished where I can travel only a few miles offshore and sight fish (Mako shark) to a fish between 80 and 400 pounds consistently with a fly out of a small skiff!

Q:

How do you up your game year after year?

A:

I’m always looking to improve myself as an outdoorsman. Being a better fly caster, a better big game angler , a bow hunter. a better guide and captain. Discovering new areas to fish either on my home waters or abroad. I never get comfortable, I always have a feeling I’m being chased by something. So, I keep moving.

Q:

Who are your heroes? Who do you look up to?

A:

My dad, he got me stoked on fishing when I was two years old. His passion and support has made it possible for me to pursue a great career traveling the world looking for the ultimate fishing experience. Of course, guys like Flip Pallot, Nick Curcione and Lefty have also shaped me into the angler I am today. They were so important in my development as an angler and outdoorsman. There legacy’s should never be forgotten.

Q:

What sound or noise do you love?

A:

My boys laughing together. There is nothing sweeter.

Q:

What are the three most essential things you need to fish?

A:

Patience, time, and a strong will.
