“Take a chunk of plywood and cut a big fish out of it…” That was my only plan when I bought that piece of birch plywood at Home Depot. Painting the Texas flag and The Dry fly on it what was just for fun! Finished it up last night, and tonight I hung it up on the outside of the shed.
This is another hand carved Wood Trout, business card holder. Trying out a new base on this one. If you’re interested, it’s available for sale.
Contact me if you’re interested in purchasing either one of these pieces. Or would like something custom made.

If Texas had its own version of the Brook Trout, it would be the Rio Grande Cichlid. These areone 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.

I’m excited to announce that there will be 3 of my digital, fly art creations in the Round Rock Arts, September exhibit for Digital Art and Sculpture. If you are a local to the Central Texas region, I would like to invite you to come out and help me represent the Fly Fishing community in the exhibit opening and artist reception, this Thursday, September 6th between 5:30 and 7:00 pm.
Thanks for the support and for playing along everyone!

Inspired by a piece of tin I saw at the grocery store last night that was painted like a Texas flag. The fly was borrowed from The Dry with a slight modification to the hook. The flag was completed in ArcGIS. This will soon be painted on a piece of tin and mounted to the outside of my new shed. Check back later for Round 2 of this weeks fly art entries!
