Artist Sandra Phifer of Tucson Arizona USA has made her print "Bob's Net" available to everyone. In 2007 Bob Kloskowski won a Montana Public Television photo contest with an underwater photo of a Yellowstone Cutthroat Trout. Since that time artist Sandy Phifer has been working on a colored pencil artwork based on that photo.

The art work will be shown at the prestigious Colored Pencil Society of America's International Exhibition in July held in Georgia.

Image size is 9" X 16". Price for the print including shipping in the USA is $75.00 USD. International orders are welcome.To contact Sandy Phifer click on the "Bob's Net" icon.

About the print: "Bob's Net" Your print will be personally signed by the artist and is available only through the IFFA web site. The Giclee print is the highest quality fine art reproduction available and is the print of choice sold and displayed by art galleries and museums. The "Bob's Net" print was created using archival quality inks on Arches Cold Pressed watercolor paper and has a life expectancy of over one hundred years, if kept out of direct sunlight. To protect the print, it should be treated like any piece of fine art and should be professionally framed using only acid free archival (or museum quality) materials.

Sheep Creek Inn

Located along the Parkes Highway between Anchorage and Denali National Park not far from Montana Creek, Sheep Creek and Goose Creek you will find this wonderful looking Log Cabin bearing the name ”Sheep Creek Inn”. In this case….looks are deceiving ! The beer is flat, the fries greasy and the burgers’ tasteless!. The service when you can find it is really bad !

Pass this place by !

Hi, I'm Barry Perkins. I have lived close to the Mataura River for over 20 years so I have an extensive knowledge of the area and the Mataura River.

Let me guide you as you fish some of the best brown trout water in New Zealand. Not only can I show you great fishing on the Mataura River, but also many other rivers and streams less than an hours drive from Gore.

I have been fishing since I was a young boy, and over the last few years as a
Bed and Breakfast host and fishing guide, have met many people from all over the world who have become good friends.

The Mataura River offers the best 'match the hatch' fishing in New Zealand. You will need long leaders and fine tippets (3-4lb).
If you like a challenge the Mataura won't disappoint you.

New Zealand is regarded as a trout fishing mecca, we offer spectacular scenery and some of the best fishing for wild
brown trout in the world.

I can supply all fishing equipment if required. This includes local flies, or if you wish to bring or tie your own, e-mail me for suitable patterns or sizes.

I am member of the New Zealand Professional Fishing Guides Association (NZPFGA) and encourage catch and release and river conservation.
