At Blackwater Fish Replicas, we work to preserve the future of fishing by encouraging anglers to consider a custom fish replica sculpture created from photos of their trophy catch. In support of catch & release fishing conservation efforts, we offer an artistic alternative to a traditional fish mount.

Fish Artist Luke Filmer of Blackwater Fish Replicas fly fisherman

Inspired by a lifetime of angling and countless hours spent fly fishing, self-taught fish artist Luke Filmer blends his love of art and angling to create original fish (replica) art sculptures in their natural habitat. Luke lives on the Olympic Peninsula in Washington State.

Luke's art has been featured on several television programs in the Pacific Northwest including EVENING MAGAZINE and NORTHWEST BACKROADS (KING5 TV), NORTHWEST OUTDOORS (KCTS9), as well as articles about Luke published in WILDLIFE ART MAGAZINE, TACOMA NEWS TRIBUNE, THE PENINSULA GATEWAY and SEQUIM GAZETTE.
