Old Lum knew he had found his sport when he heard someone talking about going “jug” fishing. But he was better at the jug part, than he was at the fishing part. Someone even tried to tell him that you’re supposed tie the hook and line to the jug and throw it out into the water, but that seemed a waste of a good drink!
This is a Harold Enlow rough out that I carved on the first day in his class. I was working on it the night before i had him again and the idea came to me to give him the fishing pole. I went outside the hotel and cut the branch off a tree for his pole and added a hook and bobber for it. He was standing on enough wood to carve it into river bank. I really like the feet on him; Harold explained some of the finer points of the anatomy of the ankles and they sure look better than I usually do. More painting to do and I’ll post some others. Thanks for looking!
