To say the water was in Stanley Meltzoff’s blood is an
understatement. He began diving off the New Jersey coast in 1922, spear
fishing in 1946, and painting fish underwater in 1965. He was introduced to
seeing bill fish in the water during a Master’s tournament in Palm Beach.
Since that time, he dove with all of the major game fish in countless
bodies of water. He created masterful paintings of these encounters
for such publications as Sports Illustrated, National Geographic, Saturday
Evening Post, Life and Field & Stream, to name just a few. He is the
father and founder of the genre.
