Bruce Smith

For over twenty years Bruce Smith has been fly-fishing the many lakes and streams within the states of New South Wales, Tasmania and Victoria.

Throughout this time Bruce has shown a dedication to fly-fishing like no other.

Photography has also experienced this dedication where his camera has never left his side. This has enabled him to encapsulate fishing images and nature's experience's in a truly remarkable way.



Also remarkable is the locations traveled, Bruce has fished and captured images within the Monaro and Snowy Mountains districts of New South Wales, the Central Highlands of Ballarat, the lake district of the Golden triangle, while the Goulburn River and it's feeder streams have been visited on a weekly bases. Tasmania has been another location keenly fished by Bruce from the high Central Plateau to the lowland mayfly streams.

In the year of 1992 Bruce began a guiding business within the state of Victoria which was one of the very first guiding operations to take place and was the foundation for others to follow.

Teaching the art of fly-fishing was important to Bruce, however he gained more satisfaction out of introducing people to nature and everything that surrounds it. His guiding operation continued for ten years until writing and photography had a greater attraction and he committed himself full time to this line of work.

Bruce has been a fly-fishing Consultant,Writer and Photographer to many publications, some of these include-
