Meet the Author

Born in 1952, Don Kirk grew up fishing the waters of east Tennessee. From childhood he loved creek fishing, and especially with this Dad’s old Leonard fly rod, which he broke during a fall in 1964. He began writing professional in 1977, with this first book on fishing in the Great Smoky Mountains published two years later.

Over the course of the next fifteen years he was a full freelance outdoor writer who hunted and fly fished worldwide. He has had thousands of articles published in such magazines as Field&Stream and Outdoor Life. During this time he was also the outdoors editor for the Knoxville Journal newspaper and co-hosted the syndicate Dixie Angler radio show.

In the early 1990s Kirk accepted the position as Editor-in-chief of Vulcan Outdoors Publishing, in Birmingham, Alabama. There he conceived almost two dozen different magazine titles, including Whitetail Journal and Southern Sporting Journal. While there he also wrote three books: Fly Fishing Guide to the Smokies, Guide to the TVA Lakes, and The Endangered Species Cookbook.

Greg Ward is the owner of Rocky Top Outfitters in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee.

Currently Kirk is the editor of IS Outdoors Magazine, and co-host on IS Outdoors, a nationally broadcast sporting show on Sirius/XM and the Voice American Network.
