Bent-Back Wet Fly

This is a Trout Fly, designed and tied by Ted Krueger. It’s a Wet Fly which means it goes beneath the surface of the water rather than floating on top. The hook is ‘bent back’ which means the barb is on top. It’s made from feathers and wool fiber.

Rock Bass

Rock Bass are warm water fish, This one was caught and released in Lake Adirondack in upstate New York. Pastels are a really good media when depicting the vibrant nuances of shiny, scaly fish, much easier for me to control than watercolor. https://www.dailypaintworks.com/buy/auction/1079279
