About The Artist: Josh Udesen
Other than painting, drawing & teaching - My interests include:
My wife and 6 year old daughter love to spend every moment we can outside. Hopefully we are instilling our young one with the same love of the outdoors as we both have.

A sunny day on the Oregon Coast
Sydney's first river trip - on the Main Payette
A hike on the Bruneau Sand Dunes
Not a big surprise, my biggest passion is flyfishing.
My wife can huck some line. I knew I was in trouble on our second date - I told my wife I saw a fish rise about 60 feet from the boat along the shore, a couple of false casts and a well place fly - both the fish and I were hooked.
First year of guiding up in Alaska - a late season rainbow on the Nush
Just hoping Sydney is as big a fan as me - on the Big Wood
An amazing companion on the river - Goose
The norm - Amy out-fishing me
