In Seasons of a Fly Fisher, Brian Smith takes us on a journey to the Pacific Northwest where we experience the thrill of fishing for salmon and cutthroat trout. He expertly guides us to lakes and rivers in BC's Central Interior that are world-renowned for rainbow trout fishing, then to the Bulkley Valley for steelhead fishing and finally the east Kootenays and southern Alberta for still more trout fishing. Seasons of a Fly Fisher is a year-long adventure through the seasons and the harmonies of nature, in which Brian Smith simplifies and demystifies the challenges of this popular sport. Brian's award-winning fly patterns and insightful tips guarantee many years of successful fly fishing.

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.
