Beautiful, beautiful work. I also checked out your northern pike and musky. Great coloring. With projects like this, who needs to go fishing?

Wow, Skip, that looks so real I thought you might be getting ready to filet him. Nice work all around- carving and painting!!!!!!!!!!
I got out with my grand daughter tonight and she got the biggest fish- A big largemouth bass in our pond across the street. This was her second one. I can’t find the picture of the big one:

You say it’s made with cherry, but it looks like it’s made with skin and bone.
