Bruce Richards Named Fly Rod & Reel's Angler of the Year

December 15, 2006 By: Marshall Cutchin

Here’s a brief profile of Bruce Richards, the “most influential fly fisher you’ve never heard of” according to Fly Rod & Reel, who’ve chosen Bruce as their 2007 Angler of the Year. Bruce also happens to be one of MidCurrent’s editorial board members, and we’re glad that Fly Rod & Reel broke their tradition of not naming industry people as Anglers of the Year. It’s hard to say enough about what Bruce has done for fly fishing and for fly fishers, from novices to professionals. He hardly ever appears in the spotlight because of his unassuming approach to the sport. And few would guess that he is one of the top fly casters in the world. Congratulations, Bruce.
