“ CEDAR DRIFTWOOD TROUT “
These stylized wall presentations are created from Red Cedar driftwood found weathering away on a gravel bar in a Tennessee river. They look a bit better now than then.
“ HANDLING WONT HURT THIS ONE”
A while back I began creating a few works that could be handled , they were done leaving the wood in its natural color. They are nice to have on your desk at work, on you Fly tying table, or just by your easy chair. I must have picked up mine 1000 times and I’ve only had it a couple of weeks ! This Brookie is the first one I’ve painted.
“ RISING BROOKIE”
Each time I begin working on a new creation, memories come flooding back of past adventures with whatever species I’ve started on. This is especially true with BROOKIES because they dwell in such beautiful places.
This little eight incher is about as big a one as I ever caught. Their beauty certainty makes up for their size. I know Brook Trout can get big, however, not in the little brooks where I fished.
