Be introduced to, or improve your skills in the fast growing art of fish carving. Since 1996, experienced fish carvers and novices alike, from across the continent, have taken advantage of Clark`s workshops and seminars with dramatic results. His students have gone on to win top awards throughout North America including both Best of Show in the Novice and Intermediate levels at the World Fish Carving Championships and also World Championship titles in both the Natural Finish and Miniature Divisions.
Clark`s studio, near Billings, Montana is located in a relaxed setting within a few hours drive of some of the most renowned trout streams in America including the Bighorn, Yellowstone, Boulder and Stillwater Rivers, all of which sustain healthy populations of Brown and Rainbow Trout. Also, less than 1 hour away is the Absaroka- Beartooth Wilderness area in the famous Beartooth Mountains which rise to an elevation well over 12,000 feet. These spectacular and scenic mountains hold hundreds of backcountry lakes and creeks that sustain large populations of Cutthroat, Golden, and Brook trout as well as Grayling. If you`ve never been to the Beartooths, you owe yourself a day or two of fishing and sightseeing in these fantastic mountains. They are truly spectacular and the late Charles Kurault labeled the Beartooth highway, "the most scenic drive in the Lower 48".
Clark's workshops may focus on all aspects of carving a fish. Individual preferences and
