The art of Paul Puckett. “The Breakoff”

Paul Puckett is an Atlanta based angler and artist originally from Dallas, TX.

Paul states, “Catch and release paintings to me are so much more than the actual fish. They reflect the feeling that comes with catching your first rainbow on a fly rod; the rush that comes from an Alaskan salmon burning line from your reel. When the client sees these paintings they remember the weather that day, the coolness of the water, the way it felt when the fish finally sipped the fly …. A catch and release painting is a way to capture the memory, and everything extraordinary that goes along with it.”
