australian bass hand-embroidery

Australian Bass hand-embroidered on hemp and yak hair.

 

Did you fish a lot as a kid? We did, at crazy hours of the morning for 6 hours plus at a time. We even have trophies for it which is kinda funny for 3 girls. The best bit was the element of surprise waiting to see what type of fish would fly out of the water. The worst bit was a toss up between peeing into a bucket in a dingey in the middle of the Broadwater or smelling like dried live bait and scales for most of the day.

 

I think this Australian Bass is in desperate need of a frame, could make a nice gift for a fisherman/woman, because everyone knows one of those right?

 

(btw: The hemp and yak hair is from Duckcloth and while it's not vegan friendly it is divine to work with, it has a super soft texture compared to most linen and/or hemp blends)
