Val Kropiwnicki - de Acero Diablo.610.VKS

VFT12432

Notify me when this product is available:

de Acero Diablo.610.VKS or "steel devilâ" is a piece in which I tried to be more true to traditional anatomy of a full dressed salmon fly. In hindsight, the horns are a little short, the hook gape a little wide and I forgot the toppings …but hey, I never could follow a pattern exactly, a genetic defect I guess?

51" x 36" x 4" steel and aluminum

Included with this and each of Val's flies are copies from the pages of his sketchbooks that relate to the fly. These pages may include alternate designs, notes made during the creation of the piece as well as miscellaneous sketches for other pieces he was working on at the same time. A provenance package if you will that allows the buyer to more fully understand the artist and the piece.

Please contact me for a shipping quote. This item is large and heavy and requires a custom shipping container.
