HOME OF THE BEST GUIDE SERVICE IN SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA—AND THE FATHER OF IT ALL CONWAY BOWMAN
The Fly Stop's new home waters are now the lapping waves of Southern California's Pacific Ocean. Our flagship Bird Rock Fly Shop location had become the premire travel destination for San Diego fly fishing, fly fishing events, guiding, and flies for every angler. It was doing so well we had to expand from our La Jolla location to a new much larger space! We can get anglers from around the world, or right here at home set up to catch, mako shark, blue shark, corbina, halibut, spotfin, croaker, striper, trout, bass, carp, and more.

His extensive fishing knowledge literally circumnavigates the globe. Conway has hosted numerous television shows such as "Fly Fishing the World," on the Sportsman Channel, ESPN's "In Search of Flywater", and "Dollar Wise Fly", on the Versus Network. He is currently the host of "The Ford Outfitters", airing on the Sportsman Channel. Conway is also the current IGFA world record holder of a Redfish on 10 kg tippet, a 41.65 pound bull. Among his many fishing achievements, Conway is most proud of his non-fishing ones.....marrying his wife Michelle, and being the proud father of their son, Max.
Captain Dave Trimble mako | blue shark | offshore | trout
Dave is hands down one of the most in the knowledgeable shark guides on the ocean. He has ran fishing trips from Alaska to Panama, not only in salt, but in fresh water as well. He has been a full time charter captain for the last 15 years, with 12 plus years of experience right here in the San Diego area. With over 2,000 shark fishing charters in his career, his passion, knowledge, and dedication to the sport are virtually unparalleled. (that too could be said for his love affair with the San Diego Chargers) On his off days, which are an extremely rare thing, Dave works with the Marble Canyon Outfitters at Lee's Ferry, conducting electroshocking surveys, and analyzing water samples from the Colorado River system. Chances are, if Dave doesn't know something about fishing, that's because it probably doesn't exist!
Born and raised in Pittsburgh, PA. He started fly-fishing when he was 16 and now, at the age of 37, has turned his hobby into his carrer. John has fished for everything from Lake Erie Steelhead to Pacific Mako Sharks. As a matter of fact, if it swims, he's probably caught it on the fly. He even holds a Master Angler Award for a Carp that he caught while living in Colorado. His addiction for Carp fishing has led him to be featured in a number of tv shows, as well as a variety of books and magazines. Most recently "The Orvis Guide to Fly Fishing for Carp" published in 2013.
John is also the general manager of The Fly Stop in La Jolla, Ca. where he provides valuable insight on everything fly-fishing, including fly tying and casting instruction. He is our lead guide for surf fishing excursions as well. John has the same passion for teaching as he does fishing and truly enjoys guiding clients of all experience levels…especially beginners! A day on the water with him is certain to be a memorable one.
