Do any of you guys draw or paint flies, fish, or lures? I've recently started and would love to see what you guys have done.

When I was a kid I drew a lot of flies on graph paper as I envisioned what I wanted to tie. Even did them with various colored pencils. I liked to draw back then. 

Have not done that in a very, very long time, but have seen some drawings that others have done more recently. It brought back good memories, and IMO, is a good means to help figure out fly patterns. 

Rich, my college major was architecture, and I could do mechanical drawing a lot better than free hand, art type drawings, but I think hard line drawings of flies cause them to lose some of the character. I would much rather see art forms than mechanical drawings, even of bass bags.  I remember all the artwork for flies that used to be in magazines, such as Outdoor Life or Field & Stream, so I guess that has biased my opinion too.

My father in law paints.  He has done several trout and salmon water colors for me which I am going to mat and frame.  I'm at work but will post pictures when I get home.

I drew a lot back in my middle/high school years too. I used to sketch flies in the margin of my notebooks to help keep me amused during class.  I suppose I still do it sometimes "before a long meeting".   Sometime I sketch furniture I would like to build too!   Oh, and fish!  : )
