The mighty Sierra Nevada mountain range runs some four hundred miles north to south, creating some of the most beautiful country that California has to offer. Famous photographer Ansel Adams spent many of his days surrounded by the wonder of the Sierra Nevada and capturing it in timeless photos. Yosemite’s stunning setting draws millions annually to stand in awe of nature’s best work. This is the Sierra Nevada.
For us fly fishers, the Sierra Nevada is a play land with trout-filled high alpine lakes, cascading creeks and spring creeks, all which flow into and form larger valley rivers. Here, a fly fisher can pursue any number of unique trout, including California’s state fish, the Golden Trout. Artist Paul Waters respects this gift from nature and has captured its stunning beauty in his latest work, The Sierra Nevada.
Anyone who has ever visited California’s Sierra Nevada will instantly recognize this lithograph, where late summer thunder clouds lift high above the snow capped mountains. Winter hints to its inevitable arrival with bursts of color, while brilliantly-colored trout hold calmly in a crystal-clear Sierra stream. Paul’s attention to detail is evident in every fish scale and stream pebble.
Celebrate the sport, the cast and the beauty of the Sierra Nevada with Paul’s work on your office wall or better yet, in your Sierra Nevada cabin. – David Dines
