BassWestUSA - Spring, 2012, Page 71

every iconic figure in the bass fishing world is a professional angler or TV fish- ing show host. Chris Armstrong is such a legend. You may not immediately recognize his name, but if you’ve picked up a fishing magazine over the past three decades, you’ve probably admired his work. Armstrong is arguably the most proficient illustrator working in the outdoor print media to- day. His stunning depictions of largemouth bass and other gamefish routinely grace the pages of premium fishing publications, including BassWestUSA. Armstrong’s astonishing ability to both capture the nuances of living fish and poke fun at the sport we sometimes take too seriously make him a truly unique talent.
