David Miller print ‘Bass and sandeels’ . . . signed by the artist.

David Miller is an angler, diver and bird-watcher, and specialises in paintings of game, sea and coarse fish underwater. His images have been used on the credit card angling rod licence (including the current one), the Environment Agency’s advertising campaigns, the cover of BASS and B.A.S.S. and Natur Cymru. They have also featured in a number of coarse and game fishing magazines and on the front covers of several angling publications.

Even if you’re not an angler you can appreciate David’s ‘underwater’ work. He captures both his subject and its environs so well; a complete package. David recently attended the BASS AGM and very kindly donated one of his prints to be used to generate funds for the B.A.S.S. Restoration project. The print (14 x 22 inches; with the mount it measures 21 x 28.5 inches) depicts a shoal of bass hunting sandeels. Click ‘here‘ for an idea of scale.
