Fly Friday - Its All About The Streamers (Big and Juicy)

  Its like a fine aged wine (any Cabernet will do) compared to a stout highball of good old fashion Irish or American Whiskey (May I suggest Knob Creek).  The dry fly is great when you are feeling a bit cultured and refined but when you are looking for a good time while going a few rounds with a the resident beef necked bully, you shuck the tiny dry and go with a fist full of feathers and hair.   
I love the dry fly as much as the next guy but sometimes I need the drug of the tug and the winter is the perfect time for that.  So for this Fly Friday I give You some un-solicited advice:  Forget the dry fly and go swing some streamers.

  As far as the art goes - I know I have been phoning it in a lot lately with the inked sketches but the list of things to do before the holidays just doesn't seem to get any smaller and time is at a premium.  The paint will just have to wait for a bit.
  But if you would like the Original of this 6x6.5in ink and colored pencil sketch it can be yours for the low price of $20 - Its on high quality Bristol Acid free paper with archival inks so it will last a Very Long time.  Honestly I am running out of room to store all the art I have created for this blog.


    One more thing - I only have a few sets of these Holiday Cards remaining and time is running out before the holiday so quit procrastinating and Email me to get yours today.

Very nice piece, even if it isn't as involved as one of your paintings.

That's a great looking drawing! I've found myself fishing streamers more these last couple years, once I tried streamer fishing I was hooked!
