Winslow Homer, arguably the most important American landscape painter was also an avid outdoorsman and he especially liked to fly fish. Many of his paintings and works that explored these subject matters were done while on his frequent trips to the Adirondacks. An exhibit at the Chicago Institute of Art right now is showing some of Winslow’s works which explore these pastimes of the artist, wish I could get there to see some in person.
