Golden Trout by Joel DeJong of A Year On the Fly

Today I got mail. Yes, we all receive mail each day. Most of the time it's just crap invoices, bills and credit card offers. What I got in the mail today is truly special though.

Some of you might already be familiar with Joel DeJong's blog A Year On The Fly. He's the very talented artist and fellow Tenkara angler who recently painted a picture of my Yellow Bee Sakasa Kebari which now is the header of this blog. Joel painted a picture of a Golden Trout and posted it on his blog for a "thank you" contest. Anybody leaving a comment would be entered in the drawing for this painting.

And yes, I was the lucky winner! I am now the proud owner of two originals or Joel's work and I am thinking of maybe adding some more soon.

Please visit Joel's blog and web site and add him to your blog roll. I am sure you will enjoy it as much as I do.

Tight Lines!

  1. He really does some nice work! I think that picture would probably look great right above where you do your fly tying.
