Many fly anglers travel to fish. It’s in our nature to explore, with some of us jetting off to destinations for once-in-a-lifetime fly-fishing trips. These trips are special. The fishing is only part of it, it’s the people, culture, and entire experience that get into our souls. Very few fly anglers have traveled as far and wide as angler, photographer, and author Matt Harris.

His book The Fish of a Lifetime, The Best Fly Fishing in the World – Volume One (Fieldsports Press, 2022), is a photojournalistic first-hand account of 42 of Harris’s top fly-fishing destinations spanning 32 countries and 28 fish species. Harris’s photography is stunning. His personal inflection and appreciation for those he shares these experiences with shines through this massive, 656 page journal that has taken years to complete. His images are exciting, his stories edged with his sense of humor which makes one feel like you are with him from the comfort of your home. High-quality heavy paper, beautifully designed pages, and a soft-touch cover add to the beauty, and richness of this book.

Take your time on this book, do not rush through it or you will miss the essence of Harris’s vison. Study the details of each photo, appreciate the colors and compositions by one of the world’s finest fly-fishing photographers.

“I love Matt’s images. They are always powerful, evocative, and dripping with authenticity. Matt has fished all over the world and covered almost every country and species that the world of fly fishing embraces. With his masterful eye and his enormous enthusiasm for the subject, he has captured a spectacular diversity of locations. In this wonderful book, you will see the very best of Matt’s work. You will see some of the greatest destinations fly fishing can take you to, and some of the more spectacular and extraordinary species you can catch with a fly rod in your hand.”

– Simon Gawesworth
