Smith has been fishing the waters of the BC's Central Interior, Cariboo, Kootenays and the Okanagan for more than twenty-five years. In his search for the perfect catch, Smith also targets steelhead and salmon innorthwest British Columbia, but readily admits his love is for trout that come freely to the dry fly.

He was recognized as Contributor of the Year in 1997 for articles published in the 'BC Wildlife Federation's Outdoor Edge' magazine. In 2008, Brian was awarded the Jack Shaw Fly Tying Award by the BC Federation of Fly Fishers.
