Thanks for taking the time to look at my site.
I've been fishing since I was six years old. The third time I went, I caught my first fish
- a 6oz perch - we were both hooked. Since then, I've discovered fly-fishing and it is, for me at least, the most magical way to fish. I've caught all kinds of crazy-looking piscine beasties including huge salmon in Russia's arctic circle, peacock bass and piranhas in the Amazon jungle and the prehistoric barramundi that infest the remote waters of Australia's Northern Territories - all on fly.
As a busy, London-based advertising photographer, fly-fishing represents the perfect antidote to the frantic world of photographing children for advertising. The solitude and opportunity for reflection, combined with the chance to experience wild, remote and fabulously beautiful
locations around the globe act as the perfect counterpoint to the hectic world of the London advertising scene. You can see my mainstream advertising work at www.mattharris.com
I've been making photographic images of fly-fishing for well over ten years, working for clients like Frontiers, Roxtons, Aardvark McLeod, The FlyFisher Group, Flycastaway, Fly Odyssey and Where Wise Men Fish, travelling to worldwide destinations that have included Argentina, Australia, the Bahamas, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Cuba, Iceland, India, New Zealand, Norway, Russia, Scotland, the USA, Venezuela and Zambia.
I have written and shot articles for publications such as Esquire, GQ Magazine,This is Fly, Catch Magazine, Trout and Salmon, Fieldsports Magazine, Trout Fisherman and The Farlows Magazine.
Over the last few years, I’ve built up a large collection of images, many of which are displayed on this site. These Images are available for commercial reproduction and as limited edition Fine Art prints.
If you are interested in sourcing an image that you can't find on the site, or you're interested in ordering a print or discussing a commission,

Best wishes and tight lines!
