Fly Fishing Fantastique

Great white herons mark the backcountry flats, feeding at low tide.  With fly rod in hand, line prepped and a stealth approach, you scan the nearby shallows for feeding fish.  In hues of brown and rust with just a hint of pink, this print so closely captures the essence of low tide that it brings to mind the slight […]

Florida Keys Legacy

Roseate Spoonbills are the striking aspect of “Florida Keys Legacy”.  Spoonbills are now rarely seen seasonally around the small islands that dot the waters off the cape where the Everglades meet the Florida Bay.  Their unique rich pink is complimented by pastels of blue-green and lavender in the sky, and the clear waters reveal bonefish lingering near the mangroves.

Fisherman’s Sunrise

Avid fishermen know what it entails to experience this moment – an early pre-dawn rise and deft navigation of the tricky waterways of Florida Bay over to the backcountry before the light of day.  But, oh, what a moment it is when the sun breaks over the islands in a colorful display of light painting the sky […]

Electric Summer

Millard fondly recalls this memory in his book, Florida Keys Impressions, when fishing the Islamorada Tarpon Tournament with legendary Keys guide, Will Mead.  After 5 days of blind casting in stormy weather, a silver king stikes and leaps as the sun suddenly breaks thru the clouds.

Chances Are

What every fisherman envisions with each cast of the rod is the moment when a hungry permit eyes his lure and is successfully fooled.   The print title, “Chances Are”, suggests the luck of casting deeper waters and the delight of the occasional unseen strike.

Bonefishing at Biscayne Bay

Native Floridians recognize the unique landmarks of Key Biscayne – not just the lighthouse on the point, but also the non-native Australian pines that line the shore.  This limited edition print likely hearkens you back to an earlier time when the waters off Miami’s Key Biscayne belonged more so to the fisherman and less to recreational boaters.

Mary’s Millard

As a senior at Coral Shores, I remember going into Tony Hammon’s classroom in the mornings and seeing sketches on the chalkboard drawn by Millard, who taught watercolor classes in the evenings.  I always admired his work in “chalk” and later began to collect whatever prints I could discover at fishing tournament silent auctions.   I have a couple of his […]

A Time for All Things

The coffee-like stained waters that meet the roots of the mangrove trees provide perfect cover for snook that lie in wait for drifting bait.
