BEYOND OBSESSED!
Fishing - Films - Philosophy

Saltwater Fly Fishing isn’t something we do, it’s what we live for! Fishing is in our blood, on our minds and is the focus of our obsession.

From the moment we rig our rods to the final cut of our films, our goal is to relate the excitement and appreciation we have for the sport, the environment and the many characters that make it special. We are a crew of guides dedicated to showcasing the extreme, the beautiful, the hilarious and ultimately, the very real aspects of life when connected to the water by a fly line.

Born on the waters surrounding Key West, Florida, World Angling has been guiding sport fishermen from all over the world since 1999. We deliver unforgettable, authentic experiences on the water, and on your screen through film and photography.

“It’s never easy to explain the love of fishing and being on the water. The passion we share for the sport, and the reasons we obsess about it are as crystal clear as the waters we navigate. The subtleties of nature, the comedy of frustration and the joy of shared success with our best friends provides a feeling that can’t be expressed in words. World Angling’s mission is to attempt to capture and share these experiences – those moments that inspire and feed the passion.”  – Will Benson

Independent Professional Guides

Let us guide you to your unforgettable fishing experience. We have spent a lifetime learning these waters and believe experience makes a big difference. When you have the knowledge and know-how of a full-time, professional fishing guide who has been there, done his homework and paid his dues, you can bet on a quality experience.

When it comes to hunting trophy gamefish, you want a guide who understands your passion, knows the local fishery and is fully committed to guiding you to your dream catch. The Florida Keys and Everglades are home to many of the most talented fishing guides in the world. We work with these professional guides everyday.  They are our friends, our neighbors, our colleagues. Whether it’s on the water as ambassadors for the National Marine Sanctuary or on conservation measures through the Lower Keys Guides Association, we are dedicated to the professionalism, etiquette, and awareness that exemplifies our full time guiding community. In-short, we take our passion seriously and we all share the same desire to preserve and protect our waters ensuring that you and future anglers will continue to experience great fishing.

Recently our passion for adventure sport fishing has expanded to include a freshwater fly fishing experience in Wyoming that provides a distinctly different experience. Trips are currently offered in the world-class Fremont Canyon located approximately 30 minutes southwest of Casper, Wyoming.

Let us help you find the right fishing guide for the experience you’re seeking. Whether it’s hunting permit on fly, pursuing the elusive bonefish or reeling in a sleek silver tarpon, we know how to make those magical moments happen.

OUR LATEST PRODUCTION

Fishing, Films & Photography

World Angling is always creating exciting film projects and inspiring photography. It’s part passion, part philosophy. Our images allow us to speak a million words in one fell swoop. Our films take you to places we know you want to go.
Back in 2007, when we were still shooting on mini DV tapes, there was a call for entries in the Drake Magazine Video Awards. In a small room adjacent to the Denver Convention Center, our friend Tom Bie was changing the face of fly fishing. As hardcore anglers from around the industry gathered to see the latest in fish porn, the next generation of anglers told their stories in the form of five-minute “hype” videos.
We were there, more than excited by what had just happened. But that was only the beginning. Fly fishing was finding a new way to showcase the sport, just like skateboarding and skiing had years earlier. A lot has happened since then. Everybody now has a camera on their phone and the sport has found a new wave of ambassadors in film makers, guides and anglers who are all making videos. So many years later, we are proud to announce, our latest production, “Ghost Stories,” a labor of love created with the support of many sponsors. Visit our Green Room to see more.
