Anadromous flies are designed to capture trout, salmon and char that live in salt water and then enter fresh water streams to spawn. These include Atlantic salmon, steelhead, sea-run browns, eastern brook trout, some arctic char, coastal cutthroat, Dolly Varden and the five Pacific Salmon.
The most popular belief is that these salmonids do not eat food during their spawning activities. Because of this lack of interest in feeding, most anadromous flies are designed to entice these great sea fish, at the very peak of their beauty and physical perfection, to strike by triggering their visual and auditory predator instincts.

**Dave will sign your art to you personally, if you’d like. Just let us know in the ‘Order Notes’ box at check-out.
Dave hand-enhances all his limited-edition prints with art pencils, inks and/or paints to enrich the colors and overall effect, adding value and individuality to the each print.
A limited-edition is a print that is only available in a limited number. The edition size tells you how many prints are produced and each is hand-signed by the artist and numbered. A number, such as 1/200, means that this is the first print signed and that there are only 200 prints that will ever be created of this work with these particular dimensions.
