As a fly angler my eyes quickly get drawn to two things: fish, and flies.

A couple of weeks ago I attended the Fresno County Fair. It had been years since I had been to a county fair, and with my parents visiting I thought it would be a fun thing to take them to one. It was huge, and quite fun really. The fair also had an art exhibit. A lot of the art there was actually really good. As I browsed the photographs and paintings my eye was drawn to one image in particular. As I got closer an instant smile appeared in my face. It was an image of life-like giant flies swinging in a playground. I went to grab my family to show them the image, and then noticed it had actually won 1st place at the fair. I received my print today, and already placed it right behind the fruit basket, figured it would get some laughs from guests.

Since you’re probably a bit like me, and flies (even house flies) may catch your attention, I figured this image and other artwork by Jan Flanigan may bring a smile to your face this weekend. If you don’t like flies you will also enjoy her artwork as not all flies are having fun…and one is actually Fly Fishing. Get it?

    I love her artwork! the flies are really cute, thank you for sharing about your visit to the fair. Every year I attend the West End Fair in Gilbertsville Pa. I really enjoy the art displays that they have at this fair.

    Really like the cute play on words with the fly fishing.
    Also there is much of a playground for the flies these days.
    A fly tied like a house fly for fly fishing is also a good producer.
