@Streamside: Watercolor Paintings of Trout and Salmon by Stuart Helmintoller

We may find in the river a gleaming prize
A litmus for the health of the very elements that sustain us
We may find in the river our own silver revelations
Shining fragments in the web of life
We may find in the river, steelhead.

--excerpt from "Found in a River" by Jeff Bright

 

"This was a large, fierce BC steelhead caught on a skated fly," says Jeff Bright, for whom I made this painting. Jeff is a fly fisher, photographer, writer, graphic designer, and conservationist from San Francisco who leads trophy steelhead adventures to the Skeena River in British Columbia. Jeff says the Skeena is home to the largest steelhead on earth! To learn more, visit jeffbright.com.
