Cody Richardson travels all over the western hemisphere in search of his next memorable catch, but it’s not just the fish that he is after. Wherever the destination, he always makes sure to carry along a screwdriver in case he happens to find a junkyard full of old cars. Crawling on his hands and knees through mangled metal, Cody harvests some of the most desired, vintage license plates for his custom works of art.
These plates are cut, bent and shaped into the forms of prized catches, such as Tarpon, Permit, Bonefish, Trout, and Steelhead. Each one created from the license plates of the country in which they are sought. Fishing destinations such as Belize, the Bahamas, Cuba and Alaska are known for colorful license plates that, when collaged together, make beautiful, one-of-a-kind pieces that will add fly fishing pizazz to any room.
These unique works are a great way to commemorate a memorable trip to the Florida Keys to chase Tarpon, or to memorialize your first Steelhead. Cody started his art career by creating personal designs at his home for friends and family, but it wasn’t long before his art caught on through local Colorado fly shops, and are now sold in shops around the world.
Makes the perfect gift to spoil yourself, or as a gift for a loved one. Every license plate art piece is handmade and is unique.
