Conway Bowman Profile
Conway Bowman
Specialty: Bluewater

Conway Bowman is a USCG-licensed captain who pioneered fly fishing for mako sharks over 27 years ago. The waters off San Diego, CA hold one of the world’s largest seasonal populations of makos, ranging in size from 40-to-300 pounds. They migrate into these temperate, nutrient-rich waters, beginning in April, and are present until mid-November. He has perfected the pursuit of mako sharks, and other bluewater species, on the fly and cares deeply about studying and preserving this unique resource.
