Art Projects Keep Me Focused

by | Mar 13, 2017 | Uncategorized | 2 comments

When I go quiet I’m either on a foreign country expedition or focused on a writing or art project while home for the first time in a while.  Well, this time it’s the latter which meant a pleasurable week at home with the Sharpies and pastels and some amusing pet deer!


I drew on several fly boxes including a Beast Jr. Cliff Box.  I had to make time for this one as I was hunkered down preparing my taxes for my tax man.  Tailing redfish on the South Carolina flats.


The big project which flat out put me in lock down mode was this commission piece for Paul Hamilton of Alberta, Canada.  Paul caught this monster on the Bow River and it measured an incredible 27”.  I created him in pastels exactly to size and literally dot for dot.  The final piece is 36” x 20” and it may well be my best brown trout art yet!


It’s back on the road this week at the Great Lakes Fly Fishing Expo in St. Paul, Minnesota.  Schedule to post on Wednesday.

I started fly fishing at age 7 in the lakes and ponds of New England cutting my teeth on various sunfish, bass, crappie and stocked trout. I went to Northland College in Ashland, Wisconsin, where I graduated with a Naturalist Degree while I discovered new fishing opportunities for pike, muskellunge, walleyes and various salmonids found in Lake Superior and its tributaries.

From there I headed west to work a few years in the Yellowstone region to simply work as much as most people fish and fish as much as most people work. I did just that, only it lasted over 20 years working at the Jack Dennis Fly Shop in Jackson, WY where I departed in 2009. Now it’s time to work for "The Man", working for myself that is.

I pursue my love to paint fish, lecture on every aspect of fly fishing you can imagine and host a few trips to some of the most exotic places you can think of. My ultimate goal is to catch as many species of fish on fly possible from freshwater to saltwater, throughout the world. I presently have taken over 440 species from over 60 countries!
