East River Fish


George Estreich’s East River Fish was created when the artist was contemplating the life span of fauna in that river. Estreich cut up 30 tomato sauce cans and an equal amount of Coke cans to put this fish together and lost about a cup of blood for his efforts.

Many of the original blood spots still dot this piece, offering a “don’t touch” warning to viewers and a reminder to me that my mother was always right.

Ray Troll - Ratfish Rule

We just got a great email from Ketchikan Chum junkie, Keith Wadley, who is lucky enough to live next door to arguably the most entertaining fish artist of all time - Ray Troll.  I personally remember wearing his stuff when I was snot nosed smolt in the early 80's.

Looks like Ray's been doing some recording lately.  Looking forward to more where that came from. In the meantime, we can get our slimy hands on his tunes here.

David Mellor Marlin Prints


......."I have subsequently found the drawing of marlin one of the most challenging endeavours in painting. Trying to capture the power and movement of these birds of paradise in bright sunlight on a moving ocean is frustrating, fun and brings me up to the present day, 2002. I am now making a living painting a fantastic subject because I didn't give in too easily after all."

Anglers are also asked not to target fish directly below the weir


For the second time in as many years, the Montana Department of Fish, Wildlife and Parks is operating a fish weir on the Madison downstream of Yellowstone with cooperation from Gallatin National Forest and funding from PPL Montana.

The primary objective of the weir is to learn about the characteristics of the fall rainbow trout spawning run" says Pat Clancey from the FWP field office in Ennis. Most rainbow trout tend to spawn in the spring, but the Hebgen Lake drainage has many rainbows that spawn in the fall.

Game Fish


Game Fish began as a found object—a mounted sailfish trophy. Larry Fuente then applied game-related artifacts—dice, miniature pinball games, poker chips, ping-pong balls, yo-yos, dominoes, and even badminton birdies—to create a flamboyant sculpture that is itself a play on words!

You can zoom in on the piece if you click through to the SAAM website.  Via: The Smithsonian American Art Museum LINK

Sol Duc Steel


Marie and I day tripped up to Port Townsend last weekend to visit our friend and fish artist extraordinaire Mike Savlen and his girlfriend Donna Lee. Earlier in the week, Donna Lee had pulled my name out of a hat in a drawing for Mike's original painting Sol Duc Steel. So we're now the proud owners of another original Savlen, our second in the family. Our first was one of his fresh art series.

Even though you can't own the original, two different sizes of limited edition prints are still available. They would make the perfect holiday gift for that steelhead addict in the family.


But the parking's a bitch


Mr Hazell, 48, has also fitted a hydraulic system so the fish can swish its tail, raise its fins and open and close its mouth.
