A Celebration of trout!
Praise for the artistry of Joseph R. Tomelleri:
“Joseph Tomelleri is the best fish illustrator I’ve ever seen. Period.”—Gary Soucie, Audubon
“Amazing illustrations…[His] fish shimmer on the pages.” —Publishers Weekly
David Allen Sibley calls his work “stunning,” and bestselling fishing author John Geirach writes, “Tomelleri’s illustrations just have to be seen to be believed.”
The fish portraits of Joseph R. Tomelleri are one of a kind and pure pleasure for anglers. Here are a dozen trout and salmon drawn with their shimmering hues, beautiful patterns, and distinctive silhouettes captured down to the finest details. The silvery coastal cutthroat trout, fresh from the sea returning to spawn in rivers and streams. The flamboyanty colored spawning male Mexican golden trout and the equally splendid female from tiny headwater streams of the Sierra Madre. The broad and powerful brown trout, a European transplant that now challenges anglers across North America. Every image is accompanied by a detailed natural history and habitat information for the featured fish, as well as a color range map and hatch charts of mayflies and caddis flies. It’s a tribute to the passion and the soul of the angler.
