Its time for a few more examples of what I have been working on when I am not working or fishing. Last year I had the pleasure of hunting big Speckled Sea Trout with a fly rod down in Florida and when a buddy of mine sent me pics of his catch I felt the flood of memories coming back.
The thing I remembered most about the sea trout I had hooked into was their fangs. For a guy that is use to the sandpaper mouths of browns and rainbows the sight of the fangs in a sea trouts mouth was enough to send shivers down my arm while trying to remove the fly.
I have come to find that these coastal trout have a dedicated bunch of followers much like us land locked anglers stalk big browns. Those speckled trout anglers watch the tides and the weather like a seasoned poker player waiting for just the right time to go all in.
In honor of those hunters of the fanged trout I worked up a few images I thought might strike a cord.
And finally with all these tools at my disposal I couldn't help but test out my recent painting on this background. The line below the happy brown trout says it all.
