Derek DeYoung’s work is well known to the fly fishing community. The artist’s fish art adorns everything from bumper stickers to travel mugs to oar skins. Simms recently talked with DeYoung about his art, brand relationships, and creative vision.

On the niche he has carved for himself in the art world, DeYoung said: “Spending my days painting fish… the way I’ve come up with to do it, for folks that are so passionate about fly fishing, seems like a pretty good gig to me,”
