This is an extremely unique and rare set of three 1899 signed artist proofs by renowned British sporting artist Douglas Adams. Each 10"x 7" print depicts a different trout fishing scene and are titled, Selecting the Fly, Got Him at Last and A Good Three-Pounder. The set is a companion to a similar set Adams accomplished on salmon fishing.
Selecting the Fly depicts an angler seated under a tree by the riverside preparing to fish. The second print, Got Him at Last, shows the angler wading knee deep in the middle of the stream. And the final print, A Good Three-Pounder, shows the angler back on the river’s bank holding up his catch.
Framed together, each print is in excellent condition and is individually signed by the artist Douglas Adam
