"I have never entered an art show so I guess the awards I’ve received are my customers accepting the completed sculptures. I don’t take deposits and ship on approval. I’ve had three sculptures returned in 18 years."Roger Fowler
Roger Fowler is the kind of guy that after you’ve talked to him for 15 minutes you’re sure you’ve known him for months and if you like art and love fly fishing, it’s more like years.
From the publisher: I was looking back on the past ten months, since Captain David Rieumont and I first started publishing this web site. We’ve come a long way — or we should say the site’s come a long way. This article — about an artist and his wife, who create the most incredible fish out of stainless steel – was the first about what we’re calling “Fishy Art”. There are a few more, and we’re going to bring them back to life, because the artwork inspired by our passion for our sport — and the creatures we target and protect — is something that’s of interest to us personally and to our readers. A lot of you are new, and may not have read it. If you think the artwork is as beautiful as we do, do us all a favor and contact the artist. His work takes six months and more to produce, so even if you want one you’ll have to wait like we’ve been doing.
