American Fly Fishing Literature 2016 Plus Art!

American Fly Fishing Literature 2016 Plus Art!

In addition to classic and fine fly fishing literature, Paul and Mary Ann Ford, also value associated art pieces. This case features a piece of driftwood turned artwork, by Bill Marts, a master international salt water fishing guide and fly tier -- and clearly wood craftsman (note the handcrafted wood flies!). It is titled Steelhead flies from Wenatchee River (1997). Also on view is a work by James Prosek, Brown trout (1996). This is an original watercolor painting done by Prosek when he was still a Yale undergraduate. It is labeled and signed by the artist. 

On display also is a panarama photograph of Rocky Ford Creek, a small, but popular desert spring creek located near Ephrata Washington. Framed in a shadow box, it includes inset flies, appropriate for use at the creek, and is the creation of master photographer, Warren Gandy. Look carefully for a special find! 

This display also features two deluxe edition books by Jeffrey Cardenas, Marquesa: a time & place with fish (1995), and, Sea level: adventures of a salt water angler (2003). Both are signed by the author, and the latter is also signed by Jimmy Buffett, who wrote the introduction.
