Iwana illustration (unfinished)

Iwana is a native trout species thriving in Japan's mountain creek. They are close related to the artic char. Yeap, the beautiful char family. I tried to catch them last year while I was visiting a friend in Nagano, Japan... buta... yield no success yet... I heard native people say "they are very delicious too"... : )

If you buy one set of those flies $50. I will illustrate a trout like this for you. Free. Only the first 10 people get it... : ) One of friends are selling his flies, I just want to help him to sell these flies quickly (Those are already great flies and he is a great steelheader, no doubt). Go Get It! I will be more than happy to draw a trout for friends who visit here!! : )

Quick Pastel Version

Cut...not the right species

I promise my brother- Bryan that I will illustrate a colorado cutthroat for him...long times ago... but I just did not feel the "colorado" lately... maybe I will need to catch them soon and feel the bloody red again... I made this coastal cutthroat last night... just want to share with you guys...

Love Chum Salmon

Originate from the North Pacific. Very close related to the Asian species Cherry Salmon.

Saltwater species sketch- Bon Bon

I am really into the sketch thing as you can tell, even in this crazy week... the sketch really help me to relax my mind, indeed. I like to use sketch as a exploring tool, expand my techniques and imaginations... They won't take long too... a good 20-30 minutes' concentration will allow me to capture the essential elements. :O)

Oystercatcher

whatever the name says, it's true! Have you ever seen a oystercatcher eating?... it is more graceful and skillful than most of the gourmets... This work is not very detailed...because I am extremely busy in these days... working on some material for a bird meeting...and the tax due tomorrow too! Yes! I am the last minuate guy! :o) I like to spark "my last minute potential" :P

Draw fish is fun...

for some reasons, I love this doodling style too... i still draw fish by using simple window program...painter... if you haven't, you should try it... just press control + Z and you can redo the mistakes... it is a plain joy to draw like a kid :o)

White Bass

Have you ever experienced combat fishing... man... this creek is loaded of people. crickets, live baits, lures, spinners...were everywhere. They are all shooting for those white bass. The bonus to fish here was the country music from car speakers, they were surround me 'out loud' while I was casting... well, you got audience while catching though... like a night market shows... : ) I kind of like it! People are friendly here...they don't like solitude either.
