Flick Ford: "Fly Fishing, Illustration, and the One that Got Away"

June 27, 2010 By: Marshall Cutchin

Scott & Nix did an excellent interview with fishing artist, book illustrator and fly fisher Flick Ford this week. Flick fly fishes “99 percent of the time,” with most of his days spent in the Delaware River system, Berkshires and northeast coast.

“On average I would say [I fish] about 90-100 days a year, down a bit from when I used to fish 100-150 days a year. Gas, time, money is in shorter supply these days, but no complaints.

Ford was most recently illustrator of the popular book FISH: 77 Great Fish of North America.
