 Rick, That is some fine work your students have created but I'm afraid your boot camp was a bit tough on James, It appears he grew a set of antlers in the after photo :)
    Rich B, It's good to see your fine work again! I hope you will continue posting. I've always enjoyed seeing your art work.
    Terry I like the Pike.
    Dave, Thanks for the smooches ;) Speaking of Dave, I was out to his shop last weekend and had the pleasure of viewing the King he posted a couple weeks ago. It has been said many times before that a picture just can't do this type of art work justice. I couldn't agree more. When I view Dave's work at times I swear that if you were to cut into it there would be meat inside! So Dave I don't take it lightly when you compliment my work!
    Today I wanted to share my fourth fish second of this species. It is a 20# Coho or as we call them here in the Pacific North West a Silver. Each fall I have the luxury of fishing for these and occasionally catch one around this size. They are a tough fighter and put on a great show. This is a blank that Dave made and is available at www.jgreplicas.com .

Wow! Lots of wicked scale tipping going on here. Wild Man.....nice job getting that silvery striping onto the musky. I have tried lots of colors for this....chrome pearlescent does it well. Whatever you use looks great. My humble entry this week.....Arp reproduction rainbow.

Dave- I would have thought everyone would be sick and tired of our pictures. Glad someone still wants to see them ;) After ten weeks last fall, I would think everyone would  have had enough...

Harum:
 Excellent job! I love it. Great work. Looks like you put a tremendous amount of time into it.

Dennis:
Love the rainbow. Your work is always tops. I really enjoy reading your articles in Breakthrough, they are always well written and informative.

Here are a few more pics:

Doug, as far as head mounts go, that is a beauty. Just a tip though, you can get more of an "action" pose with flared gills by doing what the "UP'ers" do up north. Find an old garage or shed, staple the gill covers directly to the barn out at least 45 degress.....and let the sun do the rest.  lol My grandfather had one of those, a huge one, and it may still be around somewhere. I will try to get a good pic just for those who long for the good ol'days!

Mr. Stehling.....got to sneak into your shop some day and see how you get so many Salties even though you are a Sconnie and can't live too far away. I wish I got more orders for these so I could break out the colors I seldom get to use. You look like you put yours to good  use on all your fish. I can see the irridescent glow of that blue runner. I love to watch those guys cruise the docks, but have never caught one. One question.....how do you do all that fiberglass grinding on those replicas without electricity? (Just kiddin') Have a good one!

Doug,

LOVED the detail on the pike head! My dad caught a really large pike a number of years ago- before I started dabbling in taxidermy. I dried out the head and sent it to him, with a couple of glass eyes in it. Wish I would have known about things like this back then...lol... then he wouldn't have to hide that dried out old thing in an out of the way place in the garage.

It's a sincere blessing to be able to see the work of so many talented people.

To one and all... Have super rest of the weekend.

Terry
