Brian O’Keefe

Photographer, Guide, Fly Fisherman

Brian has combined a lifetime of fly fishing photography and serious fly angling into a career of documenting and exploring fishing destinations and stories across the globe – from New Zealand, to Alaska, to Patagonia, and nearly everywhere in between.  A self-described “fishing bum with a camera,” it is the opportunities to meet interesting people, sample the great food of the world, and see new landscapes that drive Brian to find the next hatch, flat, and photograph.  A pioneer in fly fishing photography, Brian’s images and words have graced the pages of many international and national magazines as well as hundreds of books, websites, and tackle catalogs. After decades of submitting his work to other people’s publications, Brian founded Catch Magazine, a photo and video driven online fly fishing magazine that provides a unique fly fishing visual experience that can be seen in 150 countries.  As much as Brian enjoys trips to exotic and far-off destinations, he is equally thrilled to wade into the waters of his home in Bend, Oregon.
