Hi Ben-
It certainly appears that you have an eye for detail. Very nice.
I checked out your profile and it would seem we have some common ties. I spent ten years in Littleton and frequented many of the spots you mentioned; the South Platte being closest to home. I covered a lot of water back in those years. Iíve spent the month of March up on the Roaring Fork and Frying Pan for the last ten years. The midge fishing has me hooked big time. Two years ago I had some of the greatest fishing in my life on the Fork it beat the heck out of the Pan. Keep up on the nymph fishing. Some day it will just click and when it does itís a beautiful thing.

Good luck!

Very good looking work. I'd love to get one done but would hate to have it look like crap if the guy had never done atrout tat before.

Your tat looks awesome. I'm planning on getting one similar on my bicep and was wondering how much that cost you to get done. I have found a guy who does wonderful trout tats and has offered me a discount if I were to go up to Canada and go fly fishing. His site is, he has some pictures of ink he has put on others. I am also planning on getting a mayfly on my ring finger to show the girls where my priorities lie, just so there is no confusion when and if she says yes haha.

Very nice artwork! I'm not a tattoo person, but I like art. , and people have been adorning their bodies with this art form for many years.

A buddy of mine has the AEG Media fish skeleton on his chest, its a real nice tat. I have been thinking about getting the outline of the Upper Peninsula about 4 inches long and with a dry fly (adams) puncturing through Marquette. Its already been drawn up, I just need to commit to it.
