The latest from Trout Lily Studios

Though my printing schedule usualy starts in the fall (after trout season closes!) I was commissioned to produce a print centered on the energy and power of casting a fly. This print is to be for a poster for the Great Waters Fly Fishing Expo held in Minneapolis, Minnesota next spring.
I used a cherry plank for my block, Akua color ink, and bleached mullberry block paper that I get at the local art supply shop. I "believe" that I used 14 colors for this print - I'm math-challenged and it's easy for me to loose count!

  1. I really like fly fishing print, John; do you have a larger version on line so that we can see what's happening in the finer details?
    I like the way the line is carved and printed, you've given life to it.
