Fly fishing has been something my father and I have done together since I was 8 or 9 years old. After a hiatus during high school and college, we started fishing again around the same time I joined the gallery. Working together day in and day out presents unique rewards and challenges, and our nearly annual fishing trips have given us the opportunity to escape phones and door bells as well as the busyness of small family business life. We get to visit beautiful places where we concentrate on the father–son part of our relationship rather than the business-part.
We also get to meet new folks who share our passion for fishing, and spend plenty of time putting our flies in the water for some exciting catch and release fishing action.
Our most recent trip was to the gentle, beautiful Flowers River in Labrador, Canada, where we caught and released fresh sea run Atlantic Salmon. It was a treat!
Back at the gallery, we consider ourselves privileged to have owned and sold some great fishing paintings by premier American artists. Here’s a sample of some of our past highlights:
As Summer comes to a close, we look forward to the Fall season, and perhaps finding ourselves standing in a stream hoping to feel the thrill of a tug on the end of our lines.
