Join me tonight (6PM) at the Gladstone Hotel for the TCRA’s Urban Angling event for the launch of the Fishes of Toronto book featuring artwork by Charles Weiss.
I’m sure the recent fishing ban will also be a hot topic so please drop by even if only for a little while! Sorry this was posted so late, looks like my scheduled post failed to go up earlier this afternoon.
Yesterday we featured artist David Lopez and his very graphic (digital) fly art, but today we’d like to feature a more traditional (analog) artist, Jeff Currier. Jeff’s medium ranges from pen and paper, to water-colour, and even pastels. You can even commission an original water colour of your prized fish.

Daniel Lopez is a professional designer that has worked on projects ranging from architecture, to landscape architecture, to urban design. He’s also an outstanding artist with some great artwork focusing on his obsession with fly fishing. Check out Daniel Lopez’s artwork page for more, you can even buy prints of his work.

I first met Charles Weiss at the Toronto Sportsmens Show here in Toronto earlier in the year. Unfortunately due to my limited schedule I missed some good photos of his booth and showcasing some of his amazing work.
Charles is an artist in every respect, he creates amazing paintings of scenery, fish, illustrations, and perhaps most what most impressed me- his carvings of trophy fish over 40″ long!
If you’re in the Toronto or GTA and looking to see some wonderful fishing inspired artwork then I would highly recommend going to see this showing. Check out charlesweissart.com website for more great art.
