SAWDUST: 13 OCT 2017


I learned this technic on the banks of thr Ausable river in Grayling Michigan attending a fish carving clinic sponsored by Ed Waliki ( deceased now). It was in early May and I being the only southerner almost froze to death while the other 6 attendees wore short sleeve shirts! My shivering provided the ” entertainment ” for five days. This technic as well as others prove to be a turning point in my Artistic endeavors.
This little Wild Brown is amount my favorites. Jim Wiley.

Wild Brown Trout, Stonefly Nymph (click for larger image)


Little eight inch Wild Brown Trout pulling a Stonefly Nymph off a log. This creation is sculpted from Tupelo wood, a Swamp tree that grows in southern Mississippi, and Louisiana, the blooms are the source of Tupelo honey, the purest there is. This work is presented on a beautiful piece of Manzanita from Oregon Natural Manzanita Designs. I LOVE THIS PIECE!

#1506 is a realistic 14 inch Rainbow Trout, focused on a fixed fly.

Among the roots of the clearwater streams of northeaster Tennessee run the bright colors of the rainbow. Also known as Onchorinchis mykiss, the rainbow trout. This is not a native to the waters east of the Rocky Mountains, but its presence has been here long enough to have earned squatter’s rights and the love of generations of fly-fishing hominids.

#1536 is a realistic Wiley Wood Sculpture of a 14 inch Rainbow Trout, caught in the act of warily glimpsing a snagged fly. The presentation has been placed and balanced on on a fine piece of river driftwood, from the very pool where you could expect to hook-up with this beauty.

You CAN hook-up with this little WileyTrout gem by casting your gaze to the WileyTrout Store. Click the link here Rainbow #1536.
