A lifelong resident of the Pacific Northwest, Luke Filmer specializes in a precise realistic technique of painting salmon, steelhead and trout fish replicas. With a dedicated spirit, Luke adds his own style to each unique custom fiberglass fish replica he creates. Considered by many to be a master in fish painting, he has earned acclaim from sportsmen (and women), industry stakeholders, collectors – but most importantly – his clients.
Established in 1998, Luke’s company Blackwater Fish Replicas has created over 700 custom fish replica mounts, interior fish art sculptures, and interpretive displays for clients worldwide.
“I never get tired of the look on my client’s face when I present them with their hand painted fish replica” – Luke
