Wil Flack
When you’re the best in your field and you operate out of a world-renowned fishery, that makes you one of the best in the world. Wil Flack operates Tres Pescados Fly Shop out of Belize – a premier bonefish, tarpon, and permit fishery – working hard for his clients, and pursuing the love-hate relationship that is Permit fishing. When Wil needs a break, he heads to Canada for Steelhead swinging – a pursuit that also does not typically fall into the category of leisure fishing.
