"Everyone loves the painting you did for Mary." Stuart Silk, USA


"Truly outstanding."

Georges Lenzi, Fishing Journalist, France.


Hi Martin, just letting you know my mate had his 40th birthday & I presented the pictures to him in front of all his guests. He was totally blown away & speechless. Everyone could not believe how amazing they looked & the amount of detail they had. He has wanted your pictures for quite some time but never got around to purchasing one so it was a great success. Once again, thank you for all the effort you went to & for creating such amazing paintings for avid trout fishermen to enjoy. If you happen to create another limited edition brown trout print to match the rainbow trout again be sure to let me know as there are a few guys I know, including myself that would be keen to purchase one.

"Dear Martin.

I just saw your artwork for the first time, then visited your website. I'm completely awestruck. I hope the day arrives when I can commission a painting. Until then, I just want to say thanks and keep up the beautiful work. You are in a league of your own.

Rob Russel, Angler's Book Supply Co, USA.


"I couldn't be more delighted with it."

"He has done wonderful work for me that is so much finer than any other I have ever seen."

Lew Kunkel, USA.

"Dear Martin,

Picked up the beast today. What an exceptional painting! She is truly magnificent. Off to the framers tomorrow - I will take a pic for you once framed. Thanks again for another superb job. Kindest regards,

Dr Henry Slater, Sydney, Australia."


"Dear Martin,

I wanted to write to register my appreciation for a terrific job. Our trip was an 80th Birthday gift for my Dad and when he landed and released such a beautiful Rainbow in the Rangitikei, we hoped that the memories and photos would do it justice. I cannot tell you how thrilled we were to receive your wonderful painting, which truly reproduces the magnificence of that fish, and brings us both very fond memories. It must be enormously satisfying to know that you can bring flyfishermen such warm and lasting pleasure with your work.

Many Thanks.

Dr Henry Slater, Sydney, Australia."
