I plan to dedicate a wall of my house to paintings of fish. This is the third fish on that wall.
Last may, my friend Cory caught this fish in San Antonio Bay. We had a really good trip. Fish were all over the flats. In the heat of the day, when the airboat that we were on broke down, we went back into a lake. He found some black drum feeding and cast a brown and chartreuse shrimp fly to them. He then hooked and caught this fish. I took a picture of it and convinced him that drum weren’t good eating so he released it. That night a restaurant proved me wrong.
I need to give him this painting… once the wall fills up I will.
