One of the best fishing painters of this planet

Well, this is at least my humble opinion. I believe that my friend Setsuo Hamanaka is a hell of a good painter and I LOVE his stuff. Not only he draws beautifully, but he also paints fish that are not easy to find elsewhere and that any lover of Popping and Jigging game chase the most.

GTs are one of his favourite subject. One of his original oil on canvas paint is hanging on the wall of my house entrance hall, and it welcomes me every time I step in. Is a priceless treasure I truly care for.

Setsuo, is also a good fisherman and he helped me few times getting in contact with some of the most influential Japanese fishermen, from whom I have learnt a lot. Last time we met was in Panama, with Kitamura-san, for a sort of a jigging symposium.

Please, do yourself a favour and visit his web page and galleries: you will see his great gallery with fish, landscapes, seascapes and animals. He sells his prints worldwide and if you love game fish as I do, you might want one of those hanging from the wall too.
