Thread: Rainbow Trout artwork

  1. #1

    Default Rainbow Trout artwork

    Just finished my most recent piece. I was doing a number of aquarium fish drawings over the past six months and figured I'd dabble back into the gamefish genre. This is based on a fall male rainbow I caught in Western Manitoba, Canada. In the stillwater lakes, rainbows pack on the pounds and this fish was 24-inches.



    This is done on 11x14" vellum bristol paper with graphite pencils and watercolour pencils.

    Great drawing Nick, obviously you have a wonderful talent.

    I was going fly fishing until my wife suggested it, now I can't tell who is outsmarting who!

    Being "one with nature" requires a knowledge of what animals are living nearby and a weapon of sufficient magnitude to give you at minimum an equal chance of survival. No one has an invisible aura that animals can detect and sense your good intentions.

    Do you have any fishing up there this time of year or are you just waiting for the spring thaw?

    Actually reminds me... I was wondering if you know when Patterson/Tokyryk normal opens up? I am thinking about heading there when the ice comes off... I know that that is your neck of the woods, so any info would be great as to what ballpark I could be aiming for...

    Thanks,

    Nick

    Thanks folks!

    From November til late April here is "hard water" season. And I don't really like ice fishing. lol.

    Patterson last year was open early and I was fishing on it April 18th but generally it's open the last weekend of April. Totally depends on the spring though. We've had springs where it doesn't open til mid May.
