I still remember him casting a rod for me and putting worms on my hook. Before we were old enough to start fishing, my mother would take us with her to watch my father catch fish larger than we were. I was always amazed by the beauty of what came out of the water. As my sisters and I grew older, fishing took a back seat to education and we all moved away for college, but my father still recognized the importance of being on the water.
He decided to start a family trip. We now go salmon fishing every year together and camp for a weekend, reconnecting and telling the best fish stories from the day and years past.

We started spending our free time tying flies and scouting the streams for trout. I ended up with beautiful photographs of so many fish and thought it was a shame they just sat in iPhoto. So, I decided to make a few oil paintings for our fly tying and art studio to brighten up the bare walls.
