Bob White

Bob White is an artist and author whose work expresses a misspent youth. Instead of doing his homework, his nose was constantly in the outdoor books and fishing magazines of the day. Consequently, he has wandered between Alaska and Patagonia for over three decades as an itinerant fishing guide, looking for gainful employment. He now paints and writes for a living; which is to say, he’s still searching.

Bob works in watercolors, oils, pencil and ink. His ability to capture a fleeting moment through the eyes of a sportsman has earned him international recognition. His work hangs in the private and corporate collections on six continents.
Bob has worked in Southwest Alaska for over three decades. He has also guided sportsmen in Argentina, and continues to host fly-fishing trips to Patagonia, Alaska, Kamchatka, Cuba and other destinations. Bob was inducted into the Freshwater Fishing Hall of Fame as a Legendary Artist in 2009. He was Fly Rod & Reel magazine’s Guide of the Year in 1988. He and John Gierach contribute a collaborative column to Trout magazine. He regularly contributes artwork and the occasional essay to a myriad of national and international sporting publications.
