Triple Pyramid Lake Lahontan Cutthroat Trout fish replica wall mount display by Luke Filmer of Blackwater Fish Replicas

The Lahontan cutthroat is the largest growing trout native to North America.  These fish are indigenous to the tributaries of what was once Lake Lahontan, a huge ice-age lake, of which Pyramid Lake and Lake Tahoe are remnants. Jon W with Pyramid Lake Lahontan Cutthroat_2018

After Jon W. caught this beauty (one of many Lahontan cutthroat he has caught in Pyramid Lake), he had a concept of a wall mount display that featured 2-3 cutthroat replicas painted to represent fish he caught in this famous fishing lake. He knew the only guy that had the experience and “artistic-eye” to create a fish art wall display that he would be proud to feature in his home was Luke Filmer of Blackwater Fish Replicas.

An attention to detail – Custom Crowley Lake Cutthroat Trout Replica

We all have our favorite lakes and streams to fish. A special place we return to each season with the promise of catching a beautiful trophy. Luke Filmer of Blackwater Fish Replicas understands this passion and has channeled his love of fishing into creating custom hand painted fish replica art sculptures for clients all over the world. Using only a photograph, Luke captures unique details of salmon, steelhead and trout, allowing him to create a custom fish replica that will preserve his client’s memory of that perfect day on the water.

Gene T. was referred to Luke by a local fishing guide who had been following Blackwater’s Facebook page for years. Lake Crowley Cutthroat fishing guideKnowing how important details were to Gene, the guide knew Luke’s ability to create incredibly realistic fish replicas would be a good fit.

After viewing Luke’s fish replica art online, Gene called Luke to discuss his ideas and observations of what he felt was his best Crowley Lake trout. (Gene returns to Crowley Lake every spring and fall, so he had quite a few trout options for a fish replica mount!). The conversation lead to an idea to incorporate some of the sand and rocks from the shoreline of Crowley Lake into the mount. They both felt this would add authenticity to the art piece…and Gene was thrilled with Luke’s willingness to go above-and-beyond to create a truly custom fish art piece for his home.

One of the many interesting things about this particular trout was the minimal spot patterns down the side of the fish. In addition to capturing the unique spot pattern, Gene asked Luke to be sure to paint the violet flash down the middle and in the gills. Crowley Lake CA cutthroat fish replica painted by fish artist Luke Filmer of Blackwater Fish Replicas

Luke was able to pick-out these details from Gene’s photo and incorporate them into the fish replica.

The final fish art piece not only mirrors the beauty of Gene’s trout, but with the addition of the Lake Crowley sand, it also captures the beauty of the place in which he caught the fish.
