So if you aren’t a fan of Jason Borger’s Fish, Flies & Water, you should be. Yesterday I received my new brown trout t-shirt in the mail, and I am proudly sporting this beast at the office today as indicated by the stupid picture below. I’d rather be out chasing steelhead on the Vermilion, but you know, that doesn’t pay the bills. The fish on this shirt is mean looking, so mean you’d think he’d bite the balls right off of a buffalo. You’d better head on over there and order yourself one, before they run out.
I’ve been following Jeff Kennedy and Jason Borger’s Drawing Flies 52 project with interest. Each week they pick a different fly and each one paints or draws their own version of it. Its nice to see two different artists’ take on the same subject matter and its great way for one artist to interact with another. Last week’s fly was the Leadwing Coachman. I was particularly taken by Jeff’s Leadwing and thought I would share it here.
I’m half way inclined to get in touch with Jeff and inquire about purchasing the original, it would look great above my tying desk.
Keep up the good work guys.
