Art Season Begins

by | Nov 26, 2010 | Uncategorized

A week of severe winter conditions including about 18”s of snow at the house followed by sub zero temperatures has helped keep me indoors and off the water for a few days. It’s been good because I have a lot of work to do. My biggest priority has been catching up on some artwork. As many of you know I take commission orders for fish and even pets giving customers the choice of having me do the art using either watercolors or pastels. Orders tend to accumulate during the heat of fishing season. It’s just hard to keep me off the water when the hatches are good and the fish are hungry.

One of the commissions I completed this week was a 9” x 12” bonefish (Albula vulpes) watercolor painting for Dan Beistel of Florida. This was one of many gorgeous bones Dan recently caught at Little Abaco in the Bahamas. I even remarqued his painting with the fly he caught him on, a pink puff. If you’ve ever wanted to preserve a memory of a fish you caught feel free to contact me while it’s Almost too cold to fish!

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!
