We’re pretty darn lucky to live in the Pacific Northwest…a beautiful area that offers some of the best salmon fishing in the world. This unique species has earned its place as an icon of the northwest spirit.
Fish artist Luke Filmer has called the Northwest home for over 40 years. Fishing its coastal shores and pristine rivers allowed him to learn how to capture all the distinctive salmon details, which he incorporates in each of his custom salmon fish replica art sculptures.
With a dedicated spirit and patience for detail, Luke adds his own precise realistic style into his three-dimensional salmon paintings.
Luke made the decision to recently re-locate his art studio to Sequim, WA — because of its central location between Oregon and Washington’s coastline, the State of Alaska, and the shorelines of British Columbia. These Pacific Northwest locations are all home to some of the best salmon fishing locations in the world.
Preparing for your fishing trip is an adventure in itself. Because of this key natural resource (salmon), this area of the world has cultivated an entire industry around fishing.
