Peter Thompson - Artist, writer, conservationist!
About Peter Thompson
Peter, or "Trout" Thompson to his friends, simply refers to himself as an 'educator,' concentrating primarily on environmental and ecological issues. But he is an outstanding illustrator, excellent writer and fly fisherman "par excellence!" His artwork is in the permanent collections at the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation Salmon River Hatchery in Altmar, New Yorkj; in The New England Aquarium in Boston, Massachusetts; in the Norwalk Maritime Center in Norwalk, Connecticut; and in the Wells Reserve National Estuarine Research Center in Wells, Maine. Personally, I'm hoping to make some of his artwork part of my 'personal' permanent collection as well.
Oh . . . and he can tie one mean fly, too!!!
We'll be posting scans of his artwork on our Salmon and Steelhead Fly Recipe pages and they are made available. In the meantime, you can browse a few of his artworks below (prices are marked if they're for sale).
