James Prosek's book, Trout of the World, is the culmination of seven years' international travel in search of as many trout species as he could find. "I could have painted 500 trout because there are just so many species worldwide," Prosek says. "Ultimately I chose 100 fish that I thought were particularly beautiful or different." Prosek began his work on Trout of the World as a quest to find the brown trout of the Tigris River, in Turkey. But his artistic and angling passions carried him across Europe, to the Far East, and into the Pacific. Ultimately he created a catalog of trout unlike any other in art or angling history.
