River Call

Every single time I have been to the Madison River near Bozeman, Montana I am delighted at how alive the sport of fly fishing is in this area. It is by no means crowded but I am sure to find a fishermen or two enjoying the river and taking in the beauty of the area. They are always kind and nod a hello or wave to the acceptance of a few photos to add to my library of painting inspiration. This particular painting is inspired by a tall, perfect postured young sportsman on the Madison this summer.
