Steelhead or silver salmon and Apoxie Sculpt

Since noone answered this I think, I will try.

I would take a Steelhead replica and work the head over using Apoxie Sculpt. The head looks like you need to remove the Mandable(sp) and build it up. Build the lower jaw up to look like a largemouth bass.
I could not see the fins, but the colors all look dark kind of rainbow trout and brown trout mixed.

I did the google thing and here are the links.

The salmon guys on here can possibly give you a better reproduction idea on which one to use. Remodeling the head seems to be the big problem.
