Derek DeYoung's Fishing Adventures

About Derek’s Fishing Adventures

Check out the videos, photos and stories of Derek's amazing fishing adventures. Derek is always seeking out the beauty in life and in the world, searching for that magical experience or vision that will inspire him to paint at a higher level. The act of pursuing trout and steelhead with a fly rod contains so many of these magical moments. For Derek the truly inspirational vision, both as an artist and as an angler, comes once he's landed a particularly beautiful fish. Then he comes back to the studio and tries to capture it on canvas.
