a delightful blast from the not-so-far past from Jeff Kennedy and the much missed Drawing Flies 52 project.
i’m not the nostalgic type but Jeff’s and Jason Borger‘s fly and fish art collaboration where very special. their art is still out there, easily viewable for anyone willing to do a little research. i guess its the “what’ll they come with next week ?” i miss most.

as a lot of us casting geeks know, Jason Borger‘s been working on his soon to be out (and looooong-awaited !) ‘Single-Handed Fly Casting – A Modular Approach’ book so we’ll half-pardon him for not keeping up with Jeff Kennedy and their Drawing Fish and Flies 52 weekly challenge but once again, the wait was worth it !

pretty cool idea from this unknown (to me) * artist and a very interesting challenge: catching and releasing four different species of trout in a day.
