About the Design:
I grew up catching native brook trout, or "brookies" in the stream that ran through my yard. They are small but very beautiful fish, beloved by fly fishermen. I'm really happy with the final look of this print and the colors used, but if you need a different color to match your home decor, message me-- I can probably make you an artist proof to coordinate with your colors.

About Block Printing:
Block prints often have slight textures and variations in the finished products. I think that's why I love them-- each one is special.

This is a gift for an avid fly fisherman who has decided not to catch and release, but to simply use the flies with no hooks to see what they're coming for. This print is perfect for his fly fishing table. Catching brookies without causing any stress for the fish population. Thanks, Katie.
