I love doing special projects that commemorate something worthwhile! In this case, it’s the Grand Opening of the Cherokee, North Carolina chapter of Project Healing Waters and for the event I created this brand new rainbow art. The event takes place on Sunday, April the 18th at the new River’s Edge Outfitters shop in Cherokee, and of course...all are welcome.

The Cherokee warrior in the background is familiar to a lot of folks in the southeast, as his likeness is seen on a lot of the tribes advertising. I thought his steely eyed stare was appropriate, as it’s the look I’m going for as I cast my line in their Trophy Waters just a few Sundays from now.


  1. As always, a beautiful piece Alan. Hat's off to you on your avid support of PHW and I hope the Grand Opening goes well.

    And leave a hawg or two for me....


  2. Just watched a fly fishing show on Fly Rod Chronicles with Curtis Fleming fishing Cherokee NC. My wife and I plan on coming there this summer. Really a beautiful place.
