Frank Stick lived the last 37 years of his life on the Outer Banks. He is regarded as one of the country's best artists ever to paint outdoor subjects. His book AN ARTIST'S CATCH contains 285 paintings of fresh and saltwater fish. He was a founder of the Izzak Walton League, a promoter of responsible land development on the Outer Banks, and a land donor for the Wright Memorial. But he is practically unknown in his adopted state.
