Leaping Trout 1889 watercolor painting by Winslow Homer: Beautiful creation by Homer of leaping trout as he throws the lure.
Winslow Homer�s credentials as a sportsman were well established by the time he returned to the Adirondacks in 1889. A seasoned and savvy fisherman, he had experience angling around the world and particularly enjoyed casting for brook trout with his brother Charles at the North Woods Club in Minerva, New York. Homer stayed at the club in 1889 for almost four months. The artist�s firsthand knowledge of the feeding habits of trout and his keen ability to depict a fish rising to take the fly have made his Adirondack scenes canonical images in the history of American sport.
