The Roosterfish is as popular for its fighting ability as it is photogenic. The trademark comb-like dorsal fin is it’s most unique trait, while the two dark bands along its sides add to its style points. Part of the drum family, it has a sloping forehead and a very strong, bone-like jaw. Almost strictly catch and release, the rooster makes for a much better picture than a meal. Once hooked, this brazen and macho fish will try, and actually might be able, to out muscle you.
Hi and welcome to J & D Artistic Metal Designs
My name is Joe Brister I am a metal artist all the pieces I offer on my site are made by me from start to finish. Each piece is made as order is placed.
My lead times are 1 to 2 weeks to get made and shipped as I offer several options for most pieces. If you need to see about getting something done sooner please contact me and I can let you know if it can be done to meet your needs.
All my pieces are hand shaped and airbrushed using translucent dyes that allow the polishing effects to reflect back through the color for a unique look. After I finish my air brushing I use a very durable clear powder coat finish that gets backed on in my powder coat oven for a very durable finish.
My main passion is my fish if you would like to have something made you do not see on my site please contact me and I am sure I can make it for you.
Thank you and I hope you enjoy my site.

Again Joe did a great job with my order! The rooster fish was excellent as well as the flounder. The realism of these metal art fish is outstanding!
