Coosa River Spotted Bass Tee’s now Available

Artist Richie Gudzan of Paddle Out ventured with our Riverkeeper Frank Chitwood below Jordan Dam to catch Coosa River Spotted Bass. Also known as the Alabama Bass (Micropterus henshalli), the Coosa Spots are the meanest fighting black bass in the nation. Gudzan  took one of the spots caught on this trip and using a Japanese trophy fish mounting technique, gyotaku, created a precise, life-size painting of the fish. This print was then used to create these wonderful t-shirts, available in both men’s and women’s cuts, to pay homage to the Coosa Spot and honor the river conservation work of Coosa Riverkeeper.
