WILD BROWN GLIMPSING A SNAGGED FLY
This little ” WILDIE” is checking out a snagged fly. This my latest creation, it’s 10 inches long , carved from Tupelo swamp wood and presented on a beautiful Manzanita branch.
. Several years ago when my inventory was completely depleted I decided to begin setting some aside that my family could enjoy when I could no longer create , thus my PERSONAL COLLECTION had its beginning. It now consists of 10 different species of Trout. I have them displayed in my Antique Pie Safe.
Top – Brook Trout , Brown chasing a Rainbow, and Rainbow Trout.
Top Shelf – Red Band, Gila Trout, Golden Trout, Golden/ Rainbow Hybrid
Second Shelf- Dolly Varden, Yellowstone Cutthroat, Tiger Trout Hybrid
Though these are not offered for sale, I have parted with a couple when I’d created one I liked better, or an offer was made I couldn’t refuse.
I just finished this eighteen inch Brown, created from Tupelo swamp wood and presented on a beautiful piece of Caney Fork River driftwood, wall presentation. I’m looking at it right now hanging on my wall and I might not be willing to let this go for awhile, ITS STRICKING!
