The Sailfish Club of Florida was chartered in 1914 in West Palm Beach Florida and is one of the oldest fishing and fine dining clubs in Florida. Its marina is the home of the prestigious Goldcup Sailfish Tournament founded by John Rybovich in 1972 which is now one of the most coveted prizes in competitive sport fishing.
The club has never had a signature sculpture at the entrance and has recently chosen Roge and Cathy Fowler of Rivers and Reefs to create a beautiful stainless steel sailfish which stands approximately 11' tall.
"I have never entered an art show so I guess the awards I’ve received are my customers accepting the completed sculptures. I don’t take deposits and ship on approval. I’ve had three sculptures returned in 18 years."Roger Fowler
Roger Fowler is the kind of guy that after you’ve talked to him for 15 minutes you’re sure you’ve known him for months and if you like art and love fly fishing, it’s more like years.
