The "fish monster" (bottom right) as I once heard it described, is based on an old traditional sailors tattoo. It is called the Apollo's Dolphin and is supposed to provide safe passage for the wearer. I have modified the image to create the Apollo's Trout. This is supposed to provide safe passage and success for the Fly Fisherman.

The wings (upper left) that make our company's name fly are created to represent those of a mayfly spinner. The spinner stage is of significant value to the fly fisherman. This is the most vulnerable stage in the mayfly life cycle and Trout capitalize accordingly.
