Boise Is Brown Town

Ed got to head out last fall with KeepEmWet and Fishbite Media. Boise happens to be one of the best trout fishing cities in America and, because of Boise State, it’s a good football town. As always, the journals inform Ed’s artwork. These are a couple sketchbook pages inspired by autumn fishing around the stadium. Ed pokes a little bit of fun at his friends in the SEC, but it is primarily the story of the lifestyle we all enjoy in the intermountain west. There are very few places one can enjoy a great football experience and catch monster trout.

It was a special privilege to be on the water and be part of what #KeepEmWet has going on. In the sport of fly fishing where getting a shot of a great fish can be dangerous, these guys have started an unbelievable movement to keep the animal in the water. And, the team knows how to gets really good shots. Keep up the great work guys. The photos included in the journal are those of Fishbite Media.

Boise is Brown Town

Boise is one of the great places in America to live, for lots of reasons. An especially unique experience is to be a fly fisherman on game day. Ed gets time on the river with lots of great people. Fishbite Media’s Bryan Huskey is one of those. His storytelling is second to none–it was therefore a privilege for Ed to build these pages with some of the photos from the Fishbite catalogue.

Additionally, theres a bone in there thrown to Damon Bungard’s Clemson Tigers. Ed and Damon have spent some time in the woods at the No Business Lodge and after their exceptional season, it felt right to call out the Gamecocks. Ed’s been to Columbia and seen the spectacle when USC pumps up “2001 a Space Odyssey.” Do better Cocks.
