From the publisher: I was looking back on the past ten months, since Captain David Rieumont and I first started publishing this web site. We’ve come a long way — or we should say the site’s come a long way. This article — about an artist and his wife, who create the most incredible fish out of stainless steel – was the first about what we’re calling “Fishy Art”. There are a few more, and we’re going to bring them back to life, because the artwork inspired by our passion for our sport — and the creatures we target and protect — is something that’s of interest to us personally and to our readers. A lot of you are new, and may not have read it. If you think the artwork is as beautiful as we do, do us all a favor and contact the artist. His work takes six months and more to produce, so even if you want one you’ll have to wait like we’ve been doing.
