Guiding Flow is a movement, disguised as a fishing show. Our focus is education, raising awareness and promoting stewardship in an outdoor community that recognizes a need to do something. Every show leans on the stories of high profile guests who are inextricably connected to the water they fish. Our goal is to capture the hearts of viewers by sharing those relatable passionate stories, world class fishing adventures and setting an example of stewardship everyone can follow. Our legacy and the health of our last remaining wild places lie in the balance… we are just getting started.
An award-winning conservationist, tournament-winning fishing guide, ardent mentor and acclaimed television host, Captain Benny Blanco spends most of his timefighting for clean water initiatives to protect and restoreFlorida’s world class fisheries. Fed up with inaction, he set out to change the culture in the fishing industry and interjected himself into every available opportunity to speak up. Setting the example by holding the industry accountable and asking his peers to get involved, he plays an instrumental role in forcing the topic of water quality to the forefront of conversation everywhere. He is a key ambassador for organizations like Captains for Clean Water, Bonefish & Tarpon Trust and the Everglades Foundation, to name a few. When he isn’t in Tallahassee or Washington DC, you can find him on the pristine flats of Biscayne Bay or the farthest reaches of Everglades National Park. Guiding Flow TV was born from his deep passion for these places and the desire to empower our communities to become its stewards.
