IGFA Saltwater Adventures, hosted by industry veteran Bill Boyce and produced by WFN: World Fishing Network and the International Game Fish Association (IGFA), will return to WFN for its second season on Wednesday, May 23rd at 8:30 p.m. ET. Leading into this, a "Best-of Season 1" episode will air at 8:00 p.m., which highlights the most amazing fish and destinations Boyce captured on film.

IGFA Saltwater Adventures is presented in stunning high-definition as Boyce takes viewers to some of the world's best saltwater fishing locations: Guatemala, Costa Rica, Panama, Tahiti, the Seychelles, Grand Cayman, Grenada and Southern California. Viewers can live and fish vicariously through Boyce as he stays at the best resorts, visits the local hot spots, and heads out on the water for a memorable, and potentially world record setting, fishing adventure.

Here is a look at the first four episodes of Season 2:

Boyce has been active in the angling, conservation, and journalistic aspect of sport fishing his entire life. After 16 years as a fisheries biologist, his career took a turn when interest in his underwater photographs exploded. Now a photojournalist in the sport fishing industry, his underwater video talents have been used in Michael Fowlkes Productions Inside Sportfishing and with many filming expeditions with Guy Harvey, and the B.B.C. Bill hosted the World Class Sport Fishing series, and then created his own production company, directing, producing, and hosting the TELLY Award winning TV series, IGFA Angler's Digest. Boyce has been a long standing representative of the IGFA since 1996, and a board member of the NCMC since 2007.

"All of us at IGFA are very excited about the second season of this unique fishing show", said Mike Myatt, Chief Operating Officer at the IGFA. "WFN has created a platform that will highlight great fishing, the world's premier destinations and excellent corporate partners coupled with Bill's infectious passion and knowledge of the sport; we anticipate many years of success with this series."

The International Game Fish Association (IGFA) is the leading authority on angling pursuits worldwide. The organization operates the IGFA Fishing Hall of Fame in Dania Beach, FL, and is committed to the conservation of game fish and the promotion of responsible and ethical angling practices through science, education, rule making and record keeping.
