The new issue of This Is Fly dropped, and it’s great to see a feature on Dubai on the Fly make the cover. Frank Smethurst and I had the opportunity to sit down and talk about the experience of fly fishing in Dubai, and this interview is included in the issue along with many photos from Dubai.
Big thanks to RA Beattie for capturing this photo of me with a mighty queen on the cover. It’s certainly a big surprise! It’s always odd seeing myself in photos, and I’m much more comfortable on the other side of the lens. And yes, the Off the Grid Studios team kept this from me as they know I would have protested! Ha — Thanks, team!
THIS IS FLY, issue 65: LIFE ON THE ROAD Bryan Gregson: a photographer from another time
I was featured as a photographer, and Tim Harden penned a humbling article to accompany my work — a surprise indeed. Big thanks for all the support from Paris at TIF and Tim Harden at Coast Fly Media. Although I’d prefer to stay out of the limelight, I couldn’t be more humbled and thankful for this opportunity.
Head on over to This Is Fly, and check out this article along with many other great articles and photos.

I was asked by the good Doctor Andy Danylchuk to participate with images for an article, Fundamentals of Fish, about fish handling practices for This is Fly. He asked a few photographers for photos showing the good, the bad and the ugly to demonstration proper and improper fish handling. I normally don’t throw myself under the bus on purpose. It’s a has been a hot topic of discussion for a while now with the crew at Patagonia. They’ve taken responsibility to pave the way and not show the fish out of its element. I think it’s a bold step in the right direction for being good stewards of the resources… and putting your money where your mouth is.
In a nutshell – we are drowning fish with air and squeezing them a bit too hard. We need to be more conscious of the way we handle the very thing we all love so very much, the fish.
