    Bored listening to a lecture on things that I've learned many times before. This class is a joke. So I drew a little something. I don't think it is particularly good, but I was dreaming of my time on a western cascades river full of coastal cutthroat and what I used to catch most of them, a montana bucktail and a little black soft hackle.

    I've never seen Dan's face, so here is what I have seen of him catching a double rainbow.

    What a great thread plaegreid!

    I am a lucky Dad because my daughter can doodle, and then she made this cool linoleum stamp and stamped me out a nice rockfish print! Thought I would share it because I like it so much.

    That is the stamp on the bottom and the print she made with it, each stamp side by side.

    Great sketches!

    Not fish, but with my recent pastrami smoking on the mind and being bored out of my gourd, I got to sketching out the smokehouse I learned to smoke it. It was my grandfather's, 4 feet square and 6 feet tall. Cinderblock base with the fire box 3 feet lower, connected by a stove pipe. This allowed us to cold smoke at only 10-15 degrees above air temp. I plan on recreating this when I buy a house some day. We put 80 pounds of salmon filets in there once. A 5 person, 5 day trip of limiting out on silvers to Neah Bay maxed that bad boy out. Great memories to escape learning.....

    That is some fantastic work. I may have to get you to do some salmon and steelhead doodles for my mancave.

    I have to start doing this - my results won't be as nice as yours, but maybe with practice?

    I think the Photoshopped versions are great!

    Yup.. painting is difficult unless you can get away with tossing cans of different colors of house paint onto giant canvases.
