Last month an idea came to me to do something special with my favourite fishing photos. I have endless images taken during my adventures out on the water, but my absolute favourites are the release shots. I’m an advocate for catch and release fishing and especially love seeing those BIG fish go back to live on. I love to remember these memorable catches through photography. I felt these images deserved to be displayed somewhere special, rather than cooped up in a folder on my computer or on an external hard drive. I also wanted to think of a way to give back with this project. An idea was born.
“Let Them Go, Let Them Grow” Canvas Print Series
Each month I will be releasing a new canvas print featuring a different fish species being released. 10% of the proceeds will be donated to the Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters.. Prints are available in 2 sizes:
40″ by 30″ for $150
20″ by 16″ for $125
Shipping is included in the price and the prints can be mailed to anywhere in Canada or the United States. It takes about a week for the print to arrive.
I had never had a print made before, so before selling them I wanted to ensure they were high quality and turned out well. I had this image above (my favourite smallmouth release shot) printed and shipped to my home. It turned out fantastic! I decided to donate this first print to an auction benefiting a special family in need and it went for $500! I was blown away. I’ll tell you more about that later when I deliver the print, but in the meantime it’s hanging above my kitchen table so I can admire it until it goes to its new home. Below is the actual image (prints are made without the ‘SheLovesToFish.com’ watermark, of course).
Thank you for taking the time to read about my new project. You can learn more or contact me to order a print here. I also wanted to thank those of you that have recently signed up to receive my new blog updates via email! If you haven’t signed up yet, you can do so below. Let me know if there’s a certain type of species you’d like to see in this series. Thank you for all of your support!
