A scene right out of the permit fishery we have at Blackfly Lodge in Abaco, Bahamas. On certain tides and in certain moon phases (which I can't reveal) very large permit swim out of the surrounding deep water to feed on the flats for crabs, tiny lobster and small fish. I wanted to represent this scene I've seen many times in the Bahamas and I've even caught a few permit myself doing this. This was fun to paint and it just made me want to get on a boat at the lodge and look for a few rays.

Vaughn Cochran

Regarded as one of the best and more innovative artists in the world of
fishing art, Vaughn’s current groups of pencil drawings, watercolors, mixed
media, acrylic and oil paintings would be classified as contemporary sporting
art and represents the last 20 years of his work. He was trained as a fine
artist, taught at a university and his portfolio now spans over 40 years.

A multifaceted artist, he is skilled in many mediums including painting in
oil and watercolor, ceramic sculpture, art pottery, printmaking, intaglio,
silkscreen, woodcarving, batik and metal working and casting.

His contemporary sporting art reflects the world of professional fishing
where Vaughn was a fly-fishing guide for many years. “In my travels, I always
had my camera and sketch book”, says Vaughn “I’ve filled several journals with
ideas and notes for paintings and sculptures that revolve around fish and life
on the water.”
