The Week in Fish Pictures" ~Year 3~ Week 30

Rick is Traveling this week, and has asked me (his wife Kathie) to keep things going!

So here we go... A big Warm Welcome from Hinsdale New Hampshire!!!   I hope every one has had a great week! Some tremendous fish work this past week! I enjoy each and every week see the new folks and the dedicated participate who continue to inspire us and impress! 

So many Talented and gifted fish artists come here each and every week and share with us their passion and inspiration we all can use to motivate us to the next level of satisfaction and success!

I want to thank all of the great contributors who really show not only great talent and work but rather give such inspiration to all of us!

A great week Fishheads!!!!!
From beginner's to the best in the world we all join in every week in a critique free and hassle free string with nothing more then great artist and inspiring fish taxidermist and carves get together to share with one another their praise and inspiration of good will and friendship to one another.

This week I want to share again a few pictures of the last fish works of a wonderful gentleman from Drafton, Michigan, Mr. Ted Coneset past workshop. Ted's 7 day workshop was a great time Ted and for Rick and I. Ted is an exceptionally hard worker and talented gentleman fishhead for sure! Rick wanted me to tell Ted that his discipline and his relentless focus will alow him to do some truly great things in the time to come! Here is a few pictures of the last Walleye Ted finished in his workshop! I hope you enjoy the works of Ted Coneset!

So here goes!

Ted, welcome to the family and you sure did enter in style!  That is one FINE walleye.  Way to go!!!

Here are a couple of my latest fish.  The coho has been posted before but I thought I'd post a little better pic of it. 





Here is a custom cast brown trout that I did.  The fish is 28 inches long and had a couple of HUGE lamprey scars on his side.  The base is not complete and the fish needs a bit more gloss.

Man this week is looking scary already!!!!

Ted thats a sweeeeeeet walleye! The eye and head detail is second to none!!!!

Chad both fish are awesome man! Love the bases too. Like I told you before the scaring really gives it a natural look. Killer job buddy!!!!

Fishdude all three fish are great. Very subtle and natural tiger!!!!

Here's mine for the week. A massive 10.5" redfin pikerel or esox americanus. But really 10.5" is pretty big for these guys. 12" is about the biggest I've ever seen. Its a custom mold and cast from our friend Josh over at Knuth Art. This is a personal trophy of my Dads. Now I've just gotta build a base for it.

WOW!!! Some incredible stuff this week so far. Ted, that walleye is definitely one of the nicest walleyes - skin or rep I've ever seen. Awesome job!!!

Chad, the only Coho I've ever seen are the silver bullets out of Lake Michigan. I wouldn't have even known that was a Coho w/o you posting that info! Great looking fish along with the brown too.

Fishdude, very clean looking mounts. I almost did an African Tiger Fish for a customer a few years back, but the customer bailed at the last minute. I like the drum.

Travis - very nice Redfin. I've never done one or caught one. Anatomy is a bit off on the blank as far as symetry goes though (JUST kidding JOSH - lol!) Seriously, very nice blank and a very realistic paint job.

I don't chime in too often with TWIFP's, but I'm glad I took a peek this week. So far everything is off the charts and well worth taking the time to look!!!
