Drawing Flies

Black Stonefly Nymph
I've been following the blogs of Jason Borger and Jeff Kennedy. These guys are super talented artists who weekly pick a fish and/or fly to draw in 30 minutes or less. Recently they decided to pre-announce the subject matter for anyone else to follow/play along. 

I thought the 30 minutes wouldn't be enough but I made it happen. Would have been a different story if I attempted to draw a fish into the piece. (sketch time @10 min, p-shop @20 min). Anyone reading this is welcome to use my black stonefly piece as a desktop background. Cheers!



  1. Excellent design. Makes for a great background. Thanks for sharing. Tight lines.

  2. Very nice and a whole lot better then I could pull off.

  3. John - Nice Job! Glad you are able to follow along! In two weeks we have my favorite Driftless combo!

    I wish I had that talent, but I was never an artist type especially with that kind of art work. Super looking drawings, thanks for sharing
