My grandson, Hayden, loves to fish just like his Dad.  Every chance he gets in the summer, he'll be fishing from the boat, the dock, the shore . . . anywhere he can throw in a line.  The trout was hand painted and appliquéd to the background fabric.  The fins are painted Lutradur® to give them a realistic, translucent appearance.  The rocks are batiks with green eyelash yarn tucked in to simulate riverbed grasses.  The fly is metallic thread and real feathers and was given the seal of approval by the fishermen in my family.
