Another Fish Story

After posting the photo of my son and his fish my sister said she was impressed but thought I probably could draw a pretty cool fish too. In the interest of being fair ... I post here a painting of a fish that I have been working on (and off) for the last two or three weeks. This was done for fun but I may write a tutorial in the future.

A Big Fish Story

Earlier this week my son caught this beautiful brown trout. It was 27 inches long, had a 16 inch girth, and weighed between 12 and 13 pounds. He caught it on a #2 Trixie the Hooker fly and took about 20 minutes to land the fish. The fish was brought home only in photos and carefully released. A fish like this is a rare treat these days. We now are stalking another even large brown trout.
