Freshwater sports fish are a subject I'd like to take more time to explore. With so many millions of animals on the planet, it can be tricky to pay enough attention to all the different types of creatures. In the past I've been commissioned to draw some trout, salmon and other fish, but I never really considered them as a suitable subject for a serious illustration. I have since changed that opinion, when I noticed when posting links to drawing of fish on StumbleUpon.com, the hits went through the roof. Apparently, there is a large market for people who want to look at images of fish. Which is understandable as fishing is such a popular sport. I only have a few images of fish here now, but I will be adding more soon. If you'd like to recommend a species of freshwater sports fish or would like information on having a custom illustration done please shoot me an email.
Fish is an important part of humankind's existence, and for many centuries fishing was critical to our existence. Over the years, however, the activity turn from one of necessity to more one of sports and leisure. Today, fishing for sports is popular in all parts of the world, and is a billion dollar a year industry involving millions of individuals from children down at the local fishing hole to professionals who compete in illustrious competitions. The sport is so popular that artificial lakes are often created for the exclusive use of anglers, and are often stocked with high value sports fish such as trout, bass, catfish, muskellunge and others.
