The Fish & The Fly Q&A
The excellent DVD-series The Fish and the Fly are made by Danish filmmaker Niels Vestergaard and fly tyer and flyfisher Morten Oland. We contacted them regarding the videos and got them to answer to a few questions about the project.
Stepping into the Stream Q&A
We had the chance to ask Barbara Klutinis - the woman behing the video "Stepping into the Stream" a few questions regarding her film about fly fishing women.
A Backyard in Nowhere Q&A
The DVD "A Backyard in Nowhere" is something else. Fly fishing, sure, but also a different experience traveling, fishing, hunting and meeting people by the Innoko River system in Alaska. The team behind the video is Danish, and it was quite natural to grab a hold of them and get them to talk a bit about the background for the whole project.
I have just reviewed the exciting tarpon fishing DVD Tapâm by Danish Jan Bach Kristensen and German Daniel Göz, and I thought I'd approach the two adventurous anglers with some questions regarding their unorthodox fishing and stunning video production.
"I have been an artist and fisherman my entire life. I realized a few years ago after catching a giant striped bass that I wanted a way to remember the fish so I painted the fish life-size with all of the details of the catch." says painter Jim Roszel.
"I really can't pin down exactly when I started doing artwork. I've always done it." These are the words of Sean Seal when presented with the question "how did it start?". Based in Bay City, Michigan, which is not exactly "a fly fishing paradise" as he says, he has still taken on fly fishing as a subject for his art.
Bob White is probably best known for his illustrations for John Gierach's long running column in the printed magazine Fly Rod and Reel. Here he tells a bit about how it all started, how he works - and that he also guides and has done so through 27 seasons from south to north, home and abroad.
Ever since GFF partner Martin Joergensen first discovered Yoshikazu Fujioka's Japanese web site, which was amongst the first fishing related pages he ever found on the web, he was fascinated with Fujioka's art. Now GFF can present images from "Trouts and Seasons of the Mountain Streams".
Read about Florida artist, guide and store owner Vaughn Cochran's history and see samples of his beautiful art, which stretches from pop art over impressionsitic scenes to sculptures. Cochran paints and sculpts fish and scenes from his home waters as well as other tropical waters.
South African artist Chris Bladen has specialized in doing bronzes of wildlife - particularly fish. See some of his stunning work and read about the process of shaping and finishing bronze statues of tuna, flying fish, dorados, tigerfish and much more.
Dutch Ad Swier is not only a pike fanatic beyond the ordinary but also an artist extraordinaire. His beautiful drawings and paintings have been used in books, calanders and magazines all over the world. We convinced Ad to participate in our series on Fishy Artists.
American artist Matt Zudweg creates the most amazing carved and painted works in wood. His portfolio contains signs and carved fish as as well as more three-dimensional pieces such as furniture. Some might not consider this "proper art", but trust us. It is!
"As a young kid developing my skills and vision as an artist, I found that I could find no better subject to paint then the big northern pike and largemouth bass that I would often observe cruising the weed lines out in the bayou."
Canadian watercolor artist Diane Michelin has been painting for 15 years. "Basically, in each painting, I try to tell a story that represents the day to day events that fuel our passion." as she says in this article presenting her paintings.
Rod Sutterby gave us a taste of his beautiful paintings in the book Atlantic Salmon done in cooperation with Malcolm Greenhalgh. In connection with a new series of articles about "Fishy artists" here on GFF we contacted the artist.
