American Museum of Fly Fishing Online Art Auction
Art and the sport of fly fishing have been intimately connected throughout history - and remain so today; from angler Winslow Homer to naturalist James Prosek, artists have captured the magic and chronicled the heritage of fly fishing for centuries.
Join us November 15–30 for our online art auction. 50% of the proceeds will benefit the Museum. Artists include:
There are two Leadership Circle levels, the Royal Coachman ($2,500) and the Quill Gordon ($1,000).

Bonefish Retreat by Brett James Smith
Signed, Oil on Panel,
15.5 x 19.5 inches
If there was ever an artist who captured today's sporting experience with yesterday's sense of adventure, it is Brett Smith. Born on March 19, 1958 in New Orleans, Louisiana, Smith is now considered to be among the best in his field. Sportsmen nationwide collect his work because it is not only visually exciting but also authentic and brings to bear his intimate knowledge of his sporting experience. He is one of the few artists who brings an ageless nostalgia to his subjects. As he puts it, "What is important in these outdoor paintings is mood, a feeling of how things were and still can be. The idea is to convey the natural ruggedness of the sport without missing the subtle nuances that make the experience personal."
Winner is responsible for shipping costs via FedEx Ground, which will be added to final purchase price.
