In 1994, Barry wrote and directed his first video, The Flyrodder’s Guide to Pike which was then followed with the production of an instructional DVD, The Fly Rodder’s Guide to Carp. The last four years has found Barry quite busy completing two full length fly fishing documentaries. In Pursuit of the Water Wolf, taped in Hi-Definition in Western Alaska and Canada, takes a look into the passion and expertise that drives Barry to successfully chase some of the biggest pike in the world with a fly! In his latest and most recent DVD, Urban Warfare, Barry takes a look at fishing close to home and the growing popularity of chasing carp on the fly in the inner city of Denver, Colorado. Currently, Barry is busy doing the “rough cut” on his latest adventures in a new, action packed and cinematographic masterpiece shot in Hi-Definition by TG Lewis entitled “Pursuit,” which takes a look at fly fishing opportunities, culture, and travel destinations across the world-- and right here at home. Pursuit is scheduled for release in 2010.
Barry’s continued and growing popularity with fly anglers nation-wide takes him on the seminar circuit during the winter months, traveling the country to entertain and educate the public in all that fly fishing has to offer. Barry was also the Host and Producer of The Barry Reynolds Fly Fishing Journal that aired on Altitude Sports.
During his down time you will find Barry at home in Denver, Colorado usually on a nearby stream or pond doing his favorite thing...pursuing alternative species on a fly rod!
