Graphic artist and writer James Prosek illustrates fish of all kinds. His books and drawings of wild trout have captured the imagination of many. Prosek ponders flyfishing for trout, what drives many to take up this passion, and what the fish tell us about environmental quality.

A video essay shows Prosek pursuing his quest in an untrampled stream while considering the fish and its environment. After retuning to the studio he works to capture the fishes elegance in brushstroke and watercolors. His quiet meditation about Drawing the Trout can be viewed here.
