The South Lima Steelhead Society is the metaphorical fishing home of artist Richard C. Harrington. ¬†Using his outdoor experiences as inspiration, Rick draws on the memory of fly fishing, canoe trips and back country adventures to create evocative images that speak to the condition of the natural world and man’s place in it.

Calling both the Pacific Northwest and Western New York his home, Rick is more at home outside than in.

Additional non-fishing related work can be seen at http://www.rcharrington.com, and studio news can be followed at http://www.fieldnotesfrom100horsestudio.com

He’s been tying flies even longer than he’s been fishing them, since he was about 8 years old, but he’s not a professional tier. The fly tying page is here just for fun.
