About the Author
Brian Smith is a freelance outdoor writer and photographer. His work has appeared in "BCWF Outdoor Edge, The Canadian Fly Fisher" magazine, "The Art of BC Fly Fishing 2005 Calendar" and "Fly Fishing and Tying Journal". Smith has been fishing the waters of the BC's Central Interior, Cariboo, Kootenays and the Okanagan for more than twenty-five years. In his search for the perfect catch, Smith also targets steelhead and salmon in northwest British Columbia, but readily admits his love is for trout that come freely to the dry fly. Smith is an avid fly fisher, and an accomplished fly tier and rod builder. He was recognized as Contributor of the Year in 1997 for articles published in the "BC Wildlife Federation's Outdoor Edge" magazine. In 2008, Brian was awarded the Jack Shaw Fly Tying Award by the BC Federation of Fly Fishers. He credits his lifelong passion for fly tying to the pioneer work of the late master angler Jack Shaw, who was his friend and mentor during his formative fly fishing years in Kamloops. Smith has four children and lives with his wife Lois in Prince George, BC. "Fly Fishing BC's Interior" is his first book.
