Anchored Podcast:

Matt Harris is a London-based photographer who started his angling journey at an early age — now at 58, he’s more hooked than ever. Matt’s love for fly-fishing has led him on hundreds of extraordinary adventures across the globe, from Russia’s Arctic Circle to the Amazon jungle, Australia’s Northern Territories, there’s hardly a fly fishing destination he hasn’t visited.

In this episode of the Anchored Podcast, we discuss… everything. From snooty fishing, remote jungle escapades, today’s fishing media, Atlantic salmon in Norway and Russia, even my wedding weekend on the Bulkley ten years ago. We cover it all in this week’s episode and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
