For those who’ve experienced fishing a remote, mountain cutty river, it provides hours of great dry fly action in some of the most picturesque landscapes on the continent. Eager to take a fly, cutties are a ton of fun on light fly gear and great for novice and experienced anglers.
This piece was done life-size at 600dpi using a Wacom tablet and Photoshop.

I did this design up originally for a shirt design. The client requested a interesting steelhead piece to put on shirts. They ended up changing their mind but I still dig the design and it’d look great on a shirt!
The latest fine art piece I put together. After I completed the Rainbow Trout piece for the Stamp Competition I received a lot of hype and interest from people wanting to purchase prints. Unfortunately I had to sign a contract stating that if I won all rights were to be owned by Manitoba Fisheries. So as to not disappoint too many people, I decided to do up a steelhead piece in similar manner.
I tried a few new things with this piece. For one, I wanted to reach out from the confines of a rectangular border. I achieved this by having different aspects coming out of the traditional frame.
Along the way there’s always obstacles and things I would change for next time. It’s always a new learning experience with every piece I do.
