A little on Mike at FISHPRINTSHOP-

Michael is a fishing enthusiast with a background in Biology and Art.  The Fish Print Shop has two guiding principles, fisheries conservation through promoting Catch and Release fishing practices and fairly compensating artists for their life’s work. Michael explains, “I wanted to create something timeless that you might find in a natural history museum, old city aquarium, or biology classroom- places where I’ve always found solace when I’m not fishing.”

Michael personally makes each print to ensure the highest quality. He is constantly sourcing the finest inks and papers to ensure his prints will last “a lifetime and beyond”.

Just call, text, or email Michael and you can discuss your project.
