Born in New Westminster in 1924, Gordon Davies died in 2009. He was introduced to angling in the tiny Salmon River at Fort Langley when he was eight, and he later explored, fished, photographed and fell into virtually every major river in B.C. His articles on angling were published in Canada, the U.S. and Mexico. The Living Rivers of British Columbia (Ronsdale, 1994) portrays 19 of B.C.'s greatest rivers and distills a lifetime of fishing lore. It was followed by The Living Rivers of British Columbia & Yukon, Volume 2 (Ronsdale, 1996) that profiled another 21 rivers. He also wrote Fishing B.C. Rivers: Big Fish and Accessible Waterways (Hancock House).
