My Day Has Officially Been Made.

A while back I spotlighted the amazing trout artwork of Jared Miller. When I contacted him for that earlier post I sent him the above photo of a beautiful brook trout, the only one I have ever caught (so far!). Today Jared sent me a jpeg of my fish, illustrated in exquisite detail.

If you want Jared to illustrate a special fish, contact him through his web site.

Very cool! I love Brookies and think his artwork is far better than a lot of the better-known trout "artists."

I'd love to have a native West Coast rainbow done up like that, but I imagine the cost is pretty significant.

Great post!

Thanks Tom! Yeah, I'm a big fan. I would love to watch him do this, I think it would be fascinating to see the process unfold.

That's a nice looking brookie. How about a coastal cutthroat from the pacific NW!
