Currently touring on the Fly Fishing Film Tour, "Off the Grid" looks like a must see. Here is the description from the producers:
"When we set out in the spring of 2009 to film our new movie, Off the Grid, we decided to look for people, places, hatches and fish outside the norm. We started out west, chasing hatches and trout in Wyoming, Colorado, Idaho and Montana. From there we traveled north to Southeast Alaska and BC. We made a brief stop in the Midwest, then completed our filming on the remote flats in Mexico. On behalf of our entire crew, we are proud to present a unique cut created for the 2010 fly fishing film tour, a sneak peak at the new film... Off the Grid. We hope you enjoy the show!"
Couldn't figure out how to stop the "Auto Play" on this video...so here's the link to it: Off The Grid - Vid Here

The Glenlevit 18 year Single Malt Whisky from Speyside Scotland is a favorite in the collection. Extreamly smooth, not to be mixed with anything but a fine glass in my opinion. It has a sweet floral fragrance, is distilled twice in copper stills and then aged in oak casks for 18 years. It has a very sophisticated smooth feel and I thought was worthy as a subject for a painting. My current bottle was a gift from a close friend...the good news...he doesnt like whiskey, he's a burbon drinker. I get this all to myself.

The Wide Open Brookie was also a previous painting that I had shared on my blog, but was never satisfied with the finished product. I have recently added a green butt skunk to the mouth of the fish to complete with what I feel is the finishing touch. She was hungry and deserved more. Have you ever caught a Brook Trout with a red butt skunk?
