Great looking fish this week. Wow on the Smallie, Gary. And that Marlin is the best looking one I have ever seen. Absolutely STUNNING.

Walleyes, stripers, king salmon, even family portraits...it just doesn't get much better than this.

Hi All,well the Marlin fishing has really slowed down here in NewZealand,I have just finished that 354kg Blue Marlin,heres the finished product,all coments welcome.
Cheers Kevin

Kevin...........Super job!!!!!!!........it's so nice to see great work beyond the normal fish species that are usuals here......mastering pelagics is truely mastering fish taxidermy.......the molding, casting, finishing and final finish are far beyond what most can comprehend.........and I can tell, that by the time a large % of fish taxidermists were waiting for their pre finished fish blank to arrive, you could have finished 5-6 of those Blue Marlin........I need to move to NZ......arrrrggggggghhhhhhhhhhh

been working on a lot of fish as of lately and was looking forward on contributing and sharing my latest work. I would like to mention that Jeff Lumsdens Liquid Scales is the ultimate to work with! It is easy to work with and the scale brilliance is outstanding! I used it full strenght on a few fish and also watered it down on the fish that the scales were more transparent.

I definitly endorse Jeff's Liquid scales and for all of you who love to paint fish, this is the stuff! Now if I can only get the patience & precision USD has on his steel heads with the Liquid scales

Here are a few of my experiment with Liquid Scales

Red Parrot Fish - Full strenght mixture

Male Blue Parrot Fish- Thinned down mixture of liquid scales

Here is an African Pompano I did and sparyed the Liquid scales on with my airbrush

I used the liquid scale full strenght on this Ehu or Red Snapper

Layne I was in Hawaii for 9 months 1999-2000 sailed from here and after 33 days found paradise!!! (you just don't know how lucky you are mate)  to coin a great KIWI  saying,Didn't make it to the Big Island but got out of Honolulu to Lahaina for awhile ,totally stunned to witness the weighing of a 27lb Striped Marlin !!!down here nothing under 90kg /198lbs is weighed,(marlin wise) now some taxidermy company on the mainland would have got the job of mounting that fish(like Greys,etc)NON artistic mass produced ,unskilled fakes !!! How come you don't get BIG fish to mount??? Big Blues off Kona??

Howzit Kevin

Glad to hear you experienced our islands! It is also beautiful country from where you are too!

As for the big fish over in Kona, the charter captains of the marlins boats are all tied in with Gray's.
I was told that Gray's  gives a  5 figure start up commission  to the captains and also a huge one on the fish mounts themselves.

Once when I was in Kona, I saw a team of Grays people who flew down from Florida mold a Blue Marlin right on the dock!

I am not really concerned about Grays taking all the business as I am satisfied doing fish as an art and not a commercially made product. I beleive I am an artist first and not much of a business man anyway. I truly believe that God will always provide and not let my family starve or not pay the bills. Somehow fate in the Lord has always prevailed for us Luna's.

One day,  I would like to mold something of epic proportions! I will be in touch with you on advice on how to turn one of these huge fish to mold the other half!

Aloha from Hilo Hawaii! Sun is shining and it is a good day to fiberglass a fish blank!

Hey Brother Rick

Thank you for the nice comments!
I  realize I need a ton of work and improvement on my fin painting. I have been struggling with getting my pectoral fins looking natural and it seems some times I get it  and most other times I dont.

It is a welcomed burden to continue on this quest of learning more and to strive in  improving my fish painting, I am enjoying this renewed energy!

Have a great day
Layne

Here is a a true monster for you. A 37 " walleye repro, 26" girth . Caught on the Columbia River.
Blank could be a zander? not sure, but we sure did have trouble finding a fish big enough.
It had distinctive white along the edge of the ventral fins, as well as some dark spots mixed in with the lighter background markings.
It had dark, perch like bars as our paint job shows.
