Check out this killer trailer for an upcoming film about Capt. Conway Bowman, a San Diego-based saltwater guide and author of the Orvis Guide to Beginning Saltwater Fly Fishing. Known for his skill at putting anglers on big mako sharks, Bowman is also a fierce conservation advocate dedicated to protecting the ocean’s top predators. The new film, Speed, Muscle and Teeth, focuses on both his angling skills, his theories about why he prizes this fish above all others, and what we need to do to ensure the survival of sharks. The film will be released on January 11; to pre-order a copy, click here.
And in case you want to know more about casting for makos, in the video below, he explains his standard rig. (Ever fly-fished with a size 10/0 hook?) The best part is Conway’s clear instruction on how to tie a haywire twist, which comes in handy whenever you need to use a wire leader, whether it’s for sharks, pike, or muskies.
