Trout Art

Samuel A. Kilbourne was a mid-seventeenth century painter from Maine. He was highly skilled in landscape paintings that were combined with his love of fishes. Before his death in 1881 he completed a series of illustrations for a book on Game Fish of the United States.

I was fortunate enough to pick up a print done in the 70's by Orvis at a yart sale for $5.00. In classic Ovris form it has a proper English feel to it. Certainly it is a good fit for my apartment.
