Custom Portraits

Custom Trophy Portraits are original oil paintings commissioned by fishermen to preserve that trophy catch in custom artwork. Catch and release fishing is the norm among conservation minded fisherman.

Custom Trophy Portraits are truly a catch and release alternative to traditional fish mounts.  One advantage that custom paintings have over the new popular graphite reproductions is that an oil painting tells more of the story behind the catch.

The prices of custom trophy portraits are very comparable to graphite reproductions with prices ranging from $300 to $1,000. depending on the size and complexity of the composition.
