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.
