Overview

A beautiful and scientifically accurate representation of North America's most common sportfish

Accurately illustrated to capture the intricate detail of 15 different types of sunfishes, this essential collection of “sunnies” is artfully presented on one charming poster. Featuring stunningly beautiful reproductions, these ordinary North American fishes are arranged by relative scale and include both the common and scientific names. A favorite among fisherman for their tenacious and catchable nature and for the nostalgia associated with what many remember as their first fish, this celebration of America’s best-loved fishes is ideal for identification and will enhance any angler's art collection.
