Artist Spotlight: Erin Erickson License Plate Design

Our ‘Artist Spotlight Series’ returns as the 2014 fishing season comes to a close in Alaska.  This Fall and Winter we hope to introduce you to some new faces as well as give you some updates on our favorite artists who express the art of fly fishing. Screenshot 2014-09-25 08.10.41

We travel to Hawaii to introduce you to Erin Erickson and her knack for making old license plates come to life.  Erin can knock out pretty much anything you can spell.  For us, this meant ‘Fly Shop’, pretty much our favorite combination of words.

Save Bristol Bay


2 Minutes of your day could help generations of Wild Alaska Salmon
