Amanda Hertzfeld | Professional Artist and Fly Fishing Guide

Amanda Hertzfeld’s Art and Fly Fishing Website http://www.mandykhertzfeldart.com/ Inspired by fly fishing, my artwork is a direct reflection of my passions. Creating paintings that capture the relationships between fish, flies, and the natural environment is both challenging and fulfilling.

They come from the same place,  Passion.”  This has stuck with me for the last 30 years, and I find it applicable to various Read More

“Filthy” Flies | Third Bug Selection

8-13-2014 Bug Selection May is for love. August is for scuffling and fighting your way through the maze of thunderstorms, warm water, waning bugs and high skies.  For a guide, the dog days of August are just about putting your head down and keeping moving.  Fishing can be frustratingly tough and amazingly beautiful at the same time. Just the other day I had a couple from Florida.  Morning started out at about 42 degrees and Read More
