About this Item

An original and vibrant artist's proof painting executed in watercolor and acrylic showing a steelhead jumping clear of a northwest stream - likely an Olympic Peninsula river and perhaps a favorite spot of the late Syd Glasso; signed by the artist. In the lower left corner is an original pencil drawing of a steelhead, initialed by Bill Elliott. Mr. Elliott is a respected outdoor artist and illustrator of books; his work has also appeared in numerous periodicals. Below the colored illustration, in a recessed mount, is a variant 'Polar Shrimp' fly tied on a number 2 hook dressed by famed northwest fly tier Syd Glasso of Forks, Washington, with his signature. Mr. Glasso was an exceptionally gifted tier of steelhead spey flies and Atlantic salmon fly patterns, with a world-wide reputation for excellence and craftsmanship. Flies tied by Syd Glasso have become extraordinarily difficult to find. The painting measures 14 x 18 {overall measurements of 22 ½ x 23 under glass) with double mattes of green and white and framed with barn wood reflecting the rustic nature of the painting. The painting was done in the early 1970s. All in fine condition. Bookseller Inventory # 006653

Shipping Terms:

Orders usually ship within 2 business days. Shipping costs are based on books weighing 2.2 LB, or 1 KG. If your book order is heavy or oversized, we may contact you to let you know extra shipping is required. My chosen shipping option is the U. S. Postal Service. USPS is the best in terms of service and cost efficiency even though recent overseas rates, effective January 2013, have skyrocketed. USPS requires mails sent overseas and Canada can ONLY be sent by AIRMAIL. Charged at actual cost. Other overseas shipping options are available, such as UPS, FedEx, DHL, etc.; however, they are frightfully expensive.
