WFN Tat & Passion Ad

                                   PREP FOR THE AD           THE WFN AD  

I have a soft spot for tat work and fishing. I would like to think, some would disagree, that I helped highlight this growing trend back in 2008 with my own limited work. Of course, some will disapprove and that is fine. I see Mariko Izumi has added some ink along the way. My only concern is as I get older my trout does not develop wrinkles!

Peacock Feather Tattoo design options

Peacock feather tattoos continue to be a hot tattoo design for women. The peacock feather does lend itself to colorful options for ink. This site is a bit naughty, so look at the peacock feather pics but don’t venture to far left or right and I don’t mean the Oregon Blueberry ad either….  bodypainting69   (don’t enter if easily offended….intended for those only interested in peacock feather tattoo design options…there are two interesting designs here…)

Manhole Art, Eugene, Oregon

I stepped from my rig on E. 13th Street in Eugene, Oregon. I looked down and found a pretty nice discovery. I found it to be creative by whomever envisioned or designed it. I wonder if there are a variety of these beautiful manhole covers by East Jordan Iron Works in Eugene and elsewhere?

Eugene, Oregon on E. 13th Street

“East Jordan Iron Works, Inc. has been a part of the East Jordan, Michigan, community for over 125 years.  William E. Malpass and his father-in-law, Richard W. Round, established the foundry November 8, 1883, to service the area’s booming lumber industry.  At the time, the foundry produced castings for machine parts, ship parts, agricultural uses, and eventually railroads.  Soon after the company was founded, W.E. Malpass called upon his brother James, a journeyman machinist in England, to join the firm.”

Tom McCall Statue and Fly Fishing

Tom McCall Statue; Salem, Oregon Waterfront Park

I never realized this beautiful piece of work existed on the home front. The statue was placed in the Salem Riverfront Park in 2008. It was made in Enterprise, Oregon (NE part of state) and even took a tour around the state before being set in the park. Tom McCall was a gentlemen’s gentleman. An excellent example of leadership without arrogance.   Tom McCall Fly Fishing Statue  h/t: Creek

Phillip Synhorst carries this beautiful Brook Trout tattoo. Char Hall of Side Show Studios Custom Tattoo in Sacramento, California did the work. I have seen a touch of her other work and must say she does beautiful color work. (SwittersB) Thanks Kara/PP

Ernest Schwiebert

“I fish because of beauty” Ernest Schwiebert

I recently received an early edition of Ernest Schwiebert’s Nymphs, published in 1973. The artwork is extraordinary and the information requires study by today’s spoon fed standards. But, in studying Schwiebert, I discovered he was so gifted in expressing his recollections. I like that. As a rule, I am drawn to the visual for inspiration. But, I also am drawn to simple recollections that provide a glimpse of early inspirations and good times. I must confess that beyond techniques, I have not studied the fly fishing legends. I have a propensity to not idolize much these days, because it eventually leads to disappointment. But, Schwiebert seems to have been a bit of a Renaissance man with regard to fly fishing: science, art, literature, persona.
