About this book

First released in 2003, Trout of the World features original watercolours from around the world, ranging from the Oxus trout of eastern Afghanistan to the small golden brown trout of British chalk streams. James Prosek has dedicated his unique painting talent to bringing to life trout from around the world, several of which are the few remaining of their type. Prosek has a passion for trout and conveys their beauty with the stroke of his brush in this collection of nearly 100 gorgeous watercolours. The text provides a historical profile of each fish along with personal reflections by the author. Prosek savours the beauty of various fishing spots, along with the fate of the species, contemplating man's role in the extinction of animals. Both sensitive and informative, Trout of the World is a must for the library of the recreational fisherman as well as the ichthyologist. This reissue will feature an all new preface, along with brand new illustrations in Prosek's trademark style that explore not only the beauty of the fish, but educate and inform as well.

This revised and updated edition features an additional 30 new fish paintings, a new preface, and comes with a fold-out poster attacked to the inside of the back cover.
