Will Robins

Will Robins started his adventure into the world of fly fishing on the chalk streams and freestone spate rivers of his home county of Yorkshire in England. He quickly progressed to the large reservoirs and lakes, competing regularly in the competition circuit. Will hit his peak in the competitive world, being promoted to team captain for England fly fishing. Here, Will led the team to a gold medal at the international level. Following his competition success, Will started guiding on his home rivers for trout and grayling. As well as working at the world-renowned Farlows of Pall Mall fly store in London. Will eventually made the switch to the salt and has not looked back. He started his first saltwater operation, Precision Fly Charters, out of Ambergris Caye, Belize in 2018. Currently, Will owns and operates Fly Fishing Costa Maya, a fly shop and guiding service based in Quintana Roo, Mexico.
