The two episodes are part of the series Travels and Traditions with Burt Wolf and are dedicated to the rich history of big game sport fishing in The Palm Beaches, exploring how it became the birthplace of some of the best fishing in the world. Burt visits the West Palm Beach Fishing Club and leverages their vast knowledge and archives to take a historical look at this sport.

He also stops by the Rybovich & Sons boat building company. “It is an honor and privilege to have had the opportunity to own Rybovich for the time we did. Rybovich was the original inventor of the sport fishing boat and it was invented right here in West Palm Beach by the Rybovich brothers,” said Jim Bronstien, owner of Marine Business Advisors.
