SHOPKEEPER BIO


Phil Kininmonth, prop. The Mountain Stream Co.
Melbourne, Australia
Member Since: 2004

An Australian artist, designer and fly fisher who's been following all three of his life's passions since the early 1970s, Phil has found a way to mix them all by creating The Mountain Stream Co. (Est. 1980.)
The collection ranges from the company's symbol, trout & fly designs and famous fishing quotes to the recent addition of his fly fishing oil paintings.
"Creating fly fishing art", says Phil, "is almost as fun as going fishing."

The art of fly fishing has been a favourite subject of artists for centuries. This series of impressionist oil paintings captures a wide range of activities in a typical year on a trout stream. From still lifes and river panoramas to the detail of a rise-ring, Australian fly fisher and painter Phil Kininmonth brings his enjoyment of the stream to life.
