Incredible detail and talent displayed in each creation ! Fly fishing was my hobby for 20+ years, I know fish. These fish sculptures are all beyond amazing to me. WOW !

They are really good.
I can see why they sold also.
Thanks for showing,

The Turtle is fantastic as are the fish. I particularly liked seeing the random shaped panels you used in mounting some of these ! Way to go my friend ! I am not a fisherman, but I enjoy seeing your work ! Thanks for sharing !

Beautiful work Skip, both craftsmanship and creatively. I always share your work with my son who loves fly fishing and he admires it too.

Wow Skip, these are really great. I like the turtle the most, but I’m not taking anything away from the fish, they’re magnificent too.

It’s a good thing you left that carved, unpainted fish in the last picture; otherwise, people would just think you’re a really good taxidermist! Your carvings just keep getting better and better!
