    Although its cold and windy in my part of the country today I feel like grabbing my rod, reel and box box after looking at these and head to the nearest river, a wonderful job!

    One painter to another, you can catch the moment so well with such and economy of style.  Wow.

    I really like “Back Channel” and “Three men in a boat”. They remind me of my favorite river in Idaho, the South Fork of the Snake.
