Tyler M ....You cannot get a much better Striper guy than Mike!  I love his SBs!  Actually all his fish are beautiful!  I'm jealous...Mike's too young to do this level of work!

Hey guys and gals. Alot of nice looking fish mounts this week and last. To many to single out so I will just say congrats to all, nice work and thanks for posting your pics. This week I thought I would do something different and post a coldwater fish.
Its a trout wood carving finished several days ago with a few pics of the carving process.
Enjoy,  Dan

HOLY CRAP Dan, that is flat out amazing!!!!!!!!! I've never seen a wood carving process before and I'm really amazed at how real it looks. I and a heck of a lot of other people wouldn't be able to tell it from the real thing. I'm truly impressed great work!!!!!!!!

Dan, I love the Brown! Taking a blank piece of wood and creating that work of art is quite a statement. You truly have a gift. Just beautiful!

Terry, You really captured the essence of a red. Nice!

Aaron, Another nice fish! The detail shot is cool.

Boy, some incredible stuff again this week _ I'm AFRAID to post any of my junk!!! Incredible wood craving - my personal fav. Too many beautiful things to comment on individually, but I had to comment about Dan's wood carving!!!

Josh - just checked out your website and noticed in the "drawing and painting" section a pic of either a nuke plant worker OR is that one of the Stehling's in their grinding area for their fiberglass replicas??? LOL!!!

Another very inspiring week. Dan B. ....watching you turn that hunk of wood into a work of art is so cool. Even that "driftwood" looks like the real deal. Something I want to get into more of just for the heck of it. Oh well, 4 more months and I retire from teaching. Then I will get some real work done along the carving lines. I wish we could get more companies like Sugar Pine to revive their line of roughed out carvings. Starting from scratch like that with a band saw must be very time consuming. How long do you estimate, from start to finish, that brown trout took you? How about some of you guys out there that do this offer "semi-finished" blanks to lazy, tool less guys like me so I can just do the fine detailing and painting? Could be a market out there!!!

Aaron- A very nice looking smallmouth!

DanB- Man, I am speechless! That was a fascinating set of photos to share and walk us through. Simply amazing! If you would have shared the final photo first and said it started out as a block of wood, I probably wouldn't have believed you. Thanks for taking the time to share that.

Josh- sockeyes and "catching" don't always go together, but they certainly are an interesting fish, especially when they are schooled up SO heavily... you need to get up here to AK sometime.  ;)

Recently finished this Lake Lanier striper so thought I should join the fishing boat this week and post it.  Skin mount with cast head:


For the 'gills' on this one I inserted an appropriately shaped(half circle, sort of stair stepped)/sized piece of blue foam, covered it with Apoxie Sculpt and used a #11 Xacto blade to cut filaments into the epoxy.  Still not ideal but seems to be workable in this situation where there was not a great opeing under the gill cover.
