EL RIO

This weeks art entry:

If Texas had its own version of the Brook Trout, it would be the Rio Grande Cichlid. These are one of my favorite fish to chase with a fly rod on our local waters. They’re strong fighters, they smash your fly, are quite beautiful and a pain in the ass wrist to catch. Patience and persistence will always persevere though!

Completed entirely with a pencil and a  pen, based on a picture that I took of one of these amazing little fish, that I caught on Shoal Creek here in Austin, TX. Prints are available on Etsy. The original is available as well, ping me through the Contact page for more information.

Never be afraid to put yourself out there! Get Out In It…
