Nice trout. Looks like a brookie with a red belly.

That’s crazy!!! I didn’t think your fish was made of wood until I saw the progress photos. You did an amazing job!

I have to agree with the effort and the result, both outstanding.

The nearly translucent paint Job is beautiful and looks difficult to achieve!

I remember, from quite some time ago, seeing a husband wife pair were he did the carving and she did the painting. Her paint job took a lot longer as she seemed to paint scale by scale.

Have you done others? if so, show them!

That is unbelievably realistic! It even looks wet! You are a serious artist. What finish do you use on these fish?

Great work Skip, looks real. The carving and the coloring is really phenomenal. With my fishing luck this might be the way for me to go, make my own! I’ve been sending all your projects via email to my flyfisher son. He likes them a lot. Looking forward to more.

Very nice craftsmanship, you do great work!

Have to ask, have you ever just left one unpainted? The tough thing about painting them is you can’t tell they were wood really.
