Fishing with Larry and Hosts

Our fishing travel company was started in 1986 by Fishing the West TV host, Larry Schoenborn, and was initially called Larry's Travel. In 1994, the name was changed to Fishing with Larry.

Larry Schoenborn - Founder

Larry Schoenborn

Larry Schoenborn pioneered and hosted  Fishing the West,  a popular TV show for thirteen years. He fished over 500 locations around the world. More than 330 shows aired across the United States and internationally from Britain to Japan. The show's audience repeatedly asked Larry's advice— where to fish and where to stay — inspiring Larry, a proven entrepreneur, to start a fishing travel business - Fishing with Larry.
Larry introduced many anglers to incredible fishing opportunities worldwide. He passed away February 3, 2011, after a twelve year battle with cancer. Larry will be remembered fondly by outdoorsmen across the globe.
