This is the second in my fishing flies painting series for Running With Brushes.  I’ve been researching the subject online and talking to friends who fish. There are so many different types of fishing fly, I’m going to be spoiled for choice.

This particular fly is called General MacArthur by Darren MacEachern and Carrie Stevens – the red, white and blue, with the yellow and black flash make the US military theme quite clear. I found the painting of it a little challenging because I wasn’t in my studio so I didn’t have the brushes I would normally use.

The other Fishing Flies Painting in series so far:

Purple and Black Beaded Woolly Bugger

More tomorrow!
