The Amazing James spends some time with legendary American Fishes Artist Joe Tomelleri. Joseph R. Tomelleri has been illustrating fishes since 1985. Joe works in Prismacolor pencil, and his 1,100+ illustrations have been rendered from actual fish to ensure scientific accuracy. He has collected the majority of his specimens in the field so he can study and photograph the fishes and preserve them for use in the illustrations. Joe's work has appeared in more than 1000 publications, including Trout and Salmon of North America, Fishes of Alabama, Outdoor Life, The In-Fisherman, and Eddie Bauer. His recent projects include research on the native Trout of Mexico, Fishes of the Salish Sea and Puget Sound, Fishes of Texas, and Fishes of Kansas. Joe lives in Leawood, Kansas with his wife Susan and their two sons. http://www.americanfishes.com/about-and-contact/ Then Captain Shawn Tibbets www.mainetunafishing.com submitted a new segment Vets in the News.
