Time to do Some Artwork

It looks like all I do is fish, but I actually stay pretty busy very early in the mornings before fishing and then very late at night after fishing. This week I have been working on a huge Snake River Cutthroat painting. Today I finally put on the finishing touches and I’m pleased with the final product. The watercolor pen & ink is 22” x 30” in size and I sell it unframed for $1250 plus $30 shipping. Unless I sell it in the next 48 hours, it will be headed to the framer and then to Wyoming Gallery in Jackson, Wyoming (307 733-7548) where I display and sell my work.

Snake River Cutthroats are the native fish in the Jackson Hole, Wyoming area and in my opinion one of the prettiest of all trout. I love painting them even though they have so many small spots my eyes start to pop out when I apply them!

This cutty took me about ten days from start to finish. That’s putting a few hours in here and there whenever the artistic mood hits. And of course when I’m not on the water!

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!
