Good Grief – you do FANTASTIC work, Sir!

You have certainly found your calling – I really can’t believe that last picture is a painted replica.

As with ALL of your creations – mighty fine build!

Looking at him from the snout seems alive, compliments.

Nicely done, Skips. Reminds me of a coffee table. Glass topped. Had fish like this “swimming” below the glass.

I need to try to catch a salmon in 2014!

The Columbia River is about 10 miles away.

I do really like the look of that one.

There are/were some very nice fish carvings at a mall in Fargo ND. I do not remember the artists name.
About 5 years ago they were on a semi-permanent dispaly. Might have changed, but if close might be worth trying to see. West Acres Mall!
