Oh, yah! Now you’re speaking to me! Another truly outstanding piece of art. Absolutely beautiful, with great mount. Thanks for the post.

Actually, many outstanding pieces of art, and many great mounts? You are truly talented.

Man you are talented!

I gave the fish carving a go when I first started wood working, it definitely takes a lot of talent to do it well!

Another nice one! I sent a link of your Brown Trout to my fly fisherman son. He liked it a lot.

Skip, what great work. You have mastered the art. I am also a maniac and also work in nuclear power. My favorite past time is fishing for brooktrout along with woodworking. I doubt that I will ever have the talent to carve like you though.
