While in Indy at the Fly Fishing Expo, I had the chance to meet and connect with quite a few great people. One of which was a local artist named Ben West. He's a young and up and coming artist who's got quite the fishy side.
Ben's booth had a few of his paintings, both large and small, as well as a sketch book that featured some amazing drawings and water color paintings.
What's great about Ben is he's an extremely knowledgeable fly fisherman and local to the Midwest. With both a passion for guiding and fishing, he seems to bring both those to life on canvas and in his sketchbook.
We're hoping to have Ben featured later on this year and get to know him a bit better, but in the mean time, check out his Facebook page here: BEN WEST.
