Greg French is one of Australia’s best-known fishing authors. He spends most of his time in Australia and New Zealand, but he has fished extensively in South America, North America, the British Isles, Iceland, Eastern Europe, and Mongolia. French has spent most of his life in nature-based employment: first as a wilderness guide, followed by stints as a park ranger in Tasmania’s Wild Rivers National Park and a hatchery officer at the historic Salmon Ponds. He’s written numerous books, including a comprehensive guide, Trout Waters of Tasmania, originally published in 1984 and last updated in 2011; Frog Call (New Holland, 2002) a work of literary nonfiction; and its companion, Artificial (New Holland, 2008). Menagerie of False Truths was published by Exisle in 2010. French also co-wrote with Nick Reygaert the acclaimed documentary Hatch. In 2013, Reygaert and French produced a companion DVD, Predator, which won the Best DVD award at the 2013 IFTD tackle show in Las Vegas. He lives in Molesworth, Australia.
