Box of fishing flies

Been busy with the colouring in pencils, putting together a collection of pictures for the upcoming exhibition, Beyond Reasonable Trout. Think I’ll put them on some mugs too for that all important brew, after a hard evening’s fishing!

Beyond Reasonable Trout

The title painting for my upcoming summer exhibition at Grantown Museum July 2-10. Powering up through the water after a wee black fly, glinting in the light….. there’s a fight coming. It’s not a massive painting but it’s one that makes me smile.

Not this time

Not-today

There’s a nice ripple on the surface of the water. You’ve thought carefully about the fly to use, taking time to match the wee beasties on the surface. You’ve laid down your line, casting so carefully it might have been a cobweb touching the surface of the water. You slowly retrieve your line crossing the exact spot you saw that trout rise….. and absolutely nothing happens.
