In the world of a dry fly fisherman, there is no sight more exciting then a trout’s snout breaking the water as it takes a bug. Being a reader of the “Drake Magazine”, one of Derek’s favorite cover photos was of a trout pushing a bubble of water, just before the water tension gave way and the mayfly fell into the trout’s mouth. Derek has done a series of paintings called the “Trout Rising Series” based on this idea.
