conceptual fly fishing…

drawing and design by Al Q for Abel Fly Reels

Playing off the beautiful hand-painted fish finishes on Abel’s custom fly reels, I conceptualized this image by dropping an actual Abel reel onto a pencil drawing of a trout. I entitled it “putting the soul into fly fishing”  I was going to do a redfish and a striped bass as well. Unfortunately this design was not chosen for a tee shirt but maybe it will resurface as an ad campaign or a poster some day, no pun intended.

    Q, Cool idea. Did you hear Priest’s wife is getting a new WR?
