The Angler.
The first in a series of fine quality porcelain dolls dedicated to those who care about preserving the future of our waters and streams, and our future as fly fishers.



The Angler Series is Copyrighted and Trade Dress Laws Apply.
The Angler is an ORIGINAL DESIGNER doll available exclusively, in a Limited Edition of 10, through Elegant Portrayals Design Studio. Each doll is produced from the artist's work mold and direct-sculpted to prepare all porcelain pieces and accessories.
Full Picture Geoffrey is an original sculpture by Michelle Lightner. He stands approximately 30" tall, to the tip of his fly rod. The costume has been designed to replicate an authentic casting shirt, fly fishing vest and light-weight waders. He has been designed using a wire armature and is permanently posed on a sturdy, wooden stand. Catch & Release Geoffrey has molded and hand-painted hair, moustache, and side-burns. His embroidered "Catch and Release" hat symbolizes the meaning of the series.
Trout He holds a hand-painted, porcelain trout in his hands, ready for "immediate release." The trout is hand-painted by the artist to replicate a Rainbow, Brown or Cut Throat.
Rod Geoffrey's fly rod is made of bamboo material, with hand-wrapped guides and hand-tied flies. The handle and reel are sculpted in porcelain, trimmed in 14K White Gold and hand-painted by the artist. Vest
