Hyalited Creek 18"x24" Acrylic, Resin on Lexan Double Panel

There is a place just outside of Bozeman that has a line of cutthroat waiting to put on their spawn colors in the creek and get back into the lake. If you are from Bozeman you perhaps know the place as the cutthroat stack up by the hundreds and sit in their places as their inevitable doom takes place. They cannot get back into the lake due to the impassable barrier that they came down from. As a predator and fly fisherman this is a vulnerable time to attack these creatures that have swam the lake shores for the great amount of the year. Before they get too heavy into the mating dance they will succumb to a fly as some are at a different timeline, and will still want to reach up and grab a fly from the surface.

The fly cast painting comes from Washington State on the Stillaguamish River and with the double panel over the top represents a mash up of different trout species across two states in a different body of water. There are cutthroat in the Stillaguamish as well but the reference photos taken in Montana were too good to pass on as the fishing was hot and the sun was out.

The Blooms Caddis in this painting is a killer pattern in Pacific Northwest.
