Hey all first post. Long time lurker, I love every kind of fishing, especially land based. From BC so a lot of my fishing is on the fly, but I love to sling gear too. Planning on doing a ton of fishing in Costa Rica in the coming years if health allows :) My other passion is painting, here’s some of my work

    Thanks guys, my wife keeps asking me to paint something other than fishing stuff, but gotta stick to what inspires you :)
    Do you paint fish also?

    I have a series of fish "eye" images- I'm planning 3 and I have one done so far (omilu)...next one is shibi, a kayak angler from Hawaii sent me a killer image of his catches eye..just gorgeous, so that's next up. I also have a brook trout painting I did, it's just the side of the fish. That one's on my insta account (adamdbk) As far as fish go I will definitely be painting some. I have a soft spot for wahoo so that will likely be the first...we'll see though!
    I'm doing a costa rica trip this december where I hope to shoot lots of reference photos ;)

    Your paintings are seriously good. Have you looked into entering your local fairs? I bet you would make state easy.
    Thanks !! I appreciate it :) I'm up in British Columbia- we have a big open air art exhibit every year here but I didn't make the deadline this year, I will for sure try next year though. There is another local one I'm going to try to get into, we have a pretty decent local art scene here that I should really try to get into. Cheers

    uh....
    Where about in BC are you? I have a friend that lives in Colwood (Victoria), and one of our Skipjack guys is in Nanaimo, both on the island.

    I'm in Kelowna, in the Okanagan but lived in Victoria when I was a kid. We have family friends in Colwood..I've done a ton of fishing out that way. Here in the interior it's mostly rainbow trout, but they are nice ones!
