Bowfin (Mudfish) and Short-Nosed Gar Pike


Originally published in the 1884 edition of the "The Fisheries and Fishery Industries of the United States", this reproduction print of the Bowfin, or Mudfish, and Short-Nosed Gar Pike was drawn by H.L. Todd. It was part of the first book in a multi-volume series produced by George Brown Goode, the famed ichthyologist (fish scientist), Smithsonian museum administrator, and U.S. Fish Commissioner. He managed a large staff of scientists, researchers, and clerical employees to produce this monumental work on American Fisheries.  We are happy to make available the amazingly detailed drawings included in the first volume of the series as reproduction prints.

    A Gift for Dad

    Recently, I purchased this drawing of a Crappie for my dad. My dad is a fisherman. Crappie are his aim. I cannot tell you how many early and terribly cold mornings he has set out with high hopes of catching his limit. Some days he has done so. Other mornings, not a nibble. In either case, he has always experienced the simple pleasures and joy of creation, as the sun gave off its warmth and the waters of Kentucky its mist and peaceful allure. While this gift is merely a picture, it represents so much more. For him, it is a reminder of a pastime that has given him much; moments for reflection, occasions of adrenaline and sport, and quality time spent with family and friends. Thanks for a great product and for the joy of its reception!

    Looks great!

    The image looks great and the paper itself is good quality. It looks great in a wood frame.

    My husband loves the Dolphin Fish. This purchase was a present for him and I had this framed. He was over the moon at how beautiful this art was.

    Excellent purchase

    Not only was my order delivered very quickly (within 4-5 days), it was shipped in a cardboard enclosure to ensure the artwork was not damaged in any way. Much appreciated. The rainbow trout artwork was exactly what I was hoping for and I am very pleased with this purchase.
