"Rise to the natural fly" By Louis Rhead 1901

I found this beautiful Square Tail (a.k.a Brook Trout) in the Library of Congress digital collection.  It's by Louis Rhead and copyrighted 1901.  I think it is in the public domain but with the recent changes in the law you need a law degree to figure it out.


  1. That's very nice. Would look nice in the trout nook of my basement. And idea what medium it is? Charcoal, paints? I don't really have an eye for that sort of stuff, figured I'd ask.

  2. It's an etching. Here is the link so you could download the high res version and print it out for your man cave.
