Gates of Paradise

  This photo is the first of four sculptured panels I've created for the doors in a fly fishing cabinet I'm working on.  they are cold cast bronze but can also be cast in resin.  I have been in awe of "Lorenzo Ghiberti's  Doors" also known as the "Gates of Paradise" for  a long, long  time.  I guess these are my idea of the fisherman's version.  I'm expecting a lot of trout streams and dry fly fishing in Heaven. 
      G.E.M Skues wrote about his idea of " Fishing in the Hereafter"  in a short story that will captivate you.... you can find it in the Armchair Angler. A anthology of provocative  fishing short stories.
