I am very fortunate to have gotten to know some fantastic people in the fishing industry and the Bathgate family of ReelFlies are some of the best people around! I fully support Canadian businesses and especially those who support keeping things made in Canada. Unlike many other businesses that offer fishing flies, ReelFlies uses only Canadian tyers and the highest quality materials and hooks! I have so much respect for Steve and his family and when they asked if I’d be interested in doing up something for them I was honoured! I wanted to do something up special and really try to give them my best.
I decided on a Brook Trout which is not only one of my favourites but is also one of the mainstay target species for many of the ReelFlies’ following. This is to date my most detailed piece I’ve ever done and is 100% digitally drawn. The detail isn’t really shown unless you zoom in and see all the scale and fin detailing.
Thank you Steve, Ceri, Hayley, and the rest of the family. =)
