    Bob Wyatt writes, paints, and fishes from his base in Middlemarch, a semi-ghost town on the Taieri River in New Zealand's South Island. Born in Canada, Bob Wyatt has been a fly fisherman since the late fifties, having cut his angling teeth on the classic freestone rivers of Alberta and British Columbia. His writing on fly fishing and related topics has appeared in Gray's Sporting Journal, Fly Rod & Reel, the UK's Fly Fishing & Fly Tying, and Australia's FlyLife magazine.
