John Gierach and Bob White Celebrate 100th Column in Fly Rod & Reel

Author John Gierach and guide, artist, and illustrator Bob White marked their 100th column together in Fly Rod & Reel’s July/October 2008 issue. Their first collaboration was in July of 1988, when Bob illustrated John’s article, “East Big Fish.”

After Lee Wulff’s tragic death in 1991, the editors at Rod & Reel asked John Gierach to write the magazine’s closing column, and Bob White was asked to illustrate it. Their first regular column together, “The Sporting Life”, was published in March of 1992. The illustration for the 100th column is a painting of John fishing his home water.

Bob White has been influenced by such masters as Homer, Sargent and Fournier, and by more recent artists, such as Pleissner, Jacques, and Sloane. He works in watercolors, oils, pencil and ink, grasping the essence of a scene in a brief sketch. 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 of sportsmen on six continents.
