Drawing Flies 52_19 Redfish Wrangler


Drawing Flies 52_19 Redfish Wrangler- Digital.

Original status: Prints are available, email me for info.

Swing by Jason's blog to check out his rendition of the of the redfish fly!

Tech Info-Went full digital with this one. This image was rendered in Adobe Illustrator CS4 and my 21" Cintique pressure sensitive pen monitor. Just grabbed my pressure sensitive pen and started drawing.

Since I have never fished for Redfish let alone any saltwater species, I searched the web for some patterns. The Redfish Wrangler is a combination of a number of patterns I found. As Jason mentioned in his last post, we are dedicating this fly to the Gulf Coast fisherman and guides. I can only hope that the disastrous oil spill will be resolved quickly and this fragile ecosystem does not sustain long term damage. This disaster will not only take it's toll on the fish and wildlife, but all of the small businesses that survive on the fishing that occurs in this region.

Great looking piece, Jeff! Love the clean lines and minimalism (but then, I'm a big fan of vector graphics and modern design). Would look cool as, say, a 4X6 on a wall in a shop (and I mean 4 feet by 6 feet). Maybe a fabric print?

So...it's your choice for next week.

JB- Thanks much. That would cool as a giant print!

How about this week we go simple and try a Woolly Worm!
