Travis Sylvester can really draw. Most people who see the artwork he has created are shocked when they realize what they are looking at is not a rich photograph or painting, but hand drawn with color pencils.

Here on the left is the original photo I took of this thick brown that slurped down a big black beetle pattern a few summers back. This also happened to be my first fish landed on a bamboo rod, making it extra special. Along the way, Travis send me a few photos of the drawing as it developed. It’s great to see so many incredible artists making our favorite fish the subject of their skills!
