One of the hottest young guides in the Florida Keys right now is Captain Will Benson (though he won't claim the title). Also known for his submissions to The Drake's annual fly fishing video contest, Benson exudes experience. Listen as Will gives an inside look at guide culture in the most competitive saltwater fly fishery on the planet; how to book a guide (early--in life!), when to go for permit, tarpon, or bones, and what is really going on inside your guide's head while you're flailing away on the deck.
