This month we have Brian O’Keefe who will be presenting his virtual program “My Favorite Fish”, a collection of Brian’s fun and colorful photos of his favorite fish from fresh and saltwater environments. Brian is no stranger to COF and will again entertain you with his humorous commentary while viewing fantastic fly fishing photography. After 45 years of harassing the fish in and around Central Oregon, Brian moved to Malheur County last May, and now resides 20 minutes away from Eastern Oregon’s premier trout river, The Owyhee and 4 minutes away from a boat ramp on the Snake River, which provides endless smallmouth fishing for this “Bass Junkie”.
Currently, he works with Eleven Angling www.elevenangling.com an organization located in Crested Butte, Colorado which owns and operates fly fishing lodges and guiding services throughout the world He is a world traveler having fished and photographed some of the greatest fresh and salt water fly fish destinations on earth.
He sold his first fly fishing photograph at the age of 16 and ever since then has made fly fishing photography his passion and pursuit. You can see a sampling of this photography on Brian’s web site
Brian’s photography has appeared in numerous fly fishing magazines and journals as well as numerous angling books. When not fishing and taking photos he can be found at home tending to his garden and enjoying the good life.
