Derek Bird is the founding editor of Fly Fusion Magazine. He’s worked with Fusion since its inception and played an integral role in establishing the magazine’s unique vision. On a practical level, he writes the “Stream Lines” column for each issue. Along with writing and editing, he also cohosts the popular TV show Fly Fusion Television (which airs on the World Fishing Network), and oversees the selections committee for the International Fly Fishing Film Festival (IF4). Although he juggles a hectic schedule, he still finds time to do what he enjoys more than anything else in life: spending time with his wife and two sons exploring the secluded streams of Canada’s Rocky Mountains.
