"Jim's dynamic art has hung in our home for twenty years. We particularly love the vital just-caught colors of his fish. He truly captures their 'life'."
Jonathan and Laura Ayers
"While actually holding a trophy fish in your hands is a riviting moment, the memory of that fish and all the circumstances of its capture are what burns most vividly in the mind of the angler. In an era of catch and release fishing, having a wonderfully created artistic rendition of that special fish is the perfect solution. Jim Tingey approaches his craft with both a passion for fish and fishing as well as an artist's eye and touch, capturing the nuances of color and form that make his pictures stay alive long after the actual fish has been carefully released."

“Having known Jim for over thirty-five years, it is great that he is making his unique artistic talent available through watercolors that will appeal to all anglers wishing to capture the memory of a special catch and release.”

“As the proud owner of a Jim Tingey "Catch and Release" painting, I can attest to the magic of his work. The colors and the detail he put into his painting of the Red Snapper I caught not only captures the true essence of the fish, but it also lets me savor forever the excitement of that special moment. Jim's "Catch and Release" art was a definite "win win" for both me and the Red Snapper!”
Tom Campbell – Gulf Breeze, Florida
“Jim Tingey is an avid sportsman and gifted artist. I have been fishing with him and collecting his artwork for over 25 years. I am sure you will be delighted with one of his prints celebrating your special catch.”
