Here are two fish carvings which my husband carved and painted as gifts a few years ago. The largemouth bass is carved from bass and mounted on a piece of rustic oak (along with a tiny bass which he also carved and painted). The pumpkinseed is carved from bass also, but mounted in front of a piece of driftwood. (The pumpkinseed is actually somewhat larger than those of like species that we catch around here.)

these are great pieces and I love the natural display rather than it just being a fish on the wall. Awesome job

Thanks, McCoy, for the nice compliment. I wish we had clearer photos of them so everyone could see how really great they are! (My prejudice – LOL)

P.S. How is your wife’s health? Is the cancer cured?

Jim, thanks for the compliment. I sure would like to take some better photos of hubby’s carvings, but he gives them all away. :-(
