PULLING STONEFLY NYMPH OFF A LOG

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)

WILD BROWN TROUT on STONEFLY NYMPH

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!
