“Bucktail Streamers” by Dave Whitlock
Bucktail streamers are imitations of small fish that are fed upon by predator fish. The bucktail’s most distinguishing characteristic is the hair of which the body is constructed – frequently long, tapering, crinkly hair from the tail of a whitetail buck deer.
This plate of classic bucktail streamers includes the earliest, the most classic and some of the most beautiful, as well as more current designs that are bound for classic reputations. My artistic skills were delightfully challenged by the unique form, color, pattern and shape of hair. I’ve endeavored to give these bucktail portraits a semi-wet appearance as a compromise between their unruly dry hair look and the streamline wet look. I hope they catch both your eye for their beauty as well as your fly fishing imagination.

Dave will sign your art to you personally, if you’d like. Just let us know in the ‘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.
