Brown Trout Sculptures
Hand Carved and Hand Painted Wood Carvings

Brown Trout may be the second most popular trout, but it is considered to be smarter and more difficult to catch. Franz's Brown Trout Wood Sculptures capture perfectly the cunning and guile of this most wiley of trout. They are so meticulously carved and painted that they look "Fresh from the Stream" and will come alive in your home, office or gallery.

Franz captures every minute detail of the wild Brown Trout in his wood carvings. From the fluid action of a jumping trout, to the iridescence of each scale, to the illusion of a wild fish in its native habitat, you will be astounded at how life-like these sculptures are. Franz meticulously hand carves and hand paints each sculpture based upon careful studies and measurements of fish that he has caught and returned to the stream alive.

The coloration of the wild Brown Trout varies according to coloration of the environment, chemistry of the water, size of the water and food they eat. Suspended deep water fish are bright and silvery. Small stream fish are the most colorful. Because of camouflage adaptability of the fish they have darker coloration and bright colors. In large bodies of water the fish's silvery body is camouflaged when other fish look up at it and the back of the fish are different colors to blend in when seen from above. When a fish moves into shallow water their color changes. This is why you can catch fish with different coloration in the same body of water.
