Big Fish Carvings

An avid fly fisher and graphic designer, Detroit-based Bob Batchik is also a master artist who crafts from wood the fish he chases. “I like the old way of doing things,” notes Batchik.  “Each tool leaves unique marks on wood. I stopped sanding things smooth so, if you get close enough, you can see it was hand-carved.” Read more about Batchik and view some of his work in a recent profile piece on The Outdoor Journal.
