My Attempt At Gyotaku

I have recently been inspired to try Gyotaku by Rob Choi over at Angling Addict. Gyotaku is fish printing. Basically, you paint a dead fish and rub a piece of paper over it. The resulting print is your artwork.

It is a LOT harder than it sounds.

A few weeks ago I had a small Bluegill swallow a hook. Since I knew it was going to die anyway, I decided to try and make a print of it.

This was my best one out of about nine tries.

Gyotaku is a really cool art form and a great way to continue enjoying fishing, even when you are not actually fishing. I plan on practicing and learning how to do it.

Now to just catch something larger than a 6" Bluegill.....
