    The Week in Fish Pictures~ Year 3# Week# 9

    A warm and hearty Happy Thanksgiving from Hinsdale New Hampshire!!! I hope all of you fellow Fishheads are as fat dumb and happy as I am today! I love this holiday no diets no thinking about seconds just good eats and good celebration of a day of thanks! I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving and your day was full of memories of a life time that will stay with you through out the year! I was so honored this year to share in our customs of Thanksgiving with a friend and a Gentleman Mr. Martin Green of Victoria, Australia. As you may have read in the past weeks Martin is here with us at Anglers Artistry for a month of fish taxidermy and my madness of teaching this LOL! Martin got to experience first hand the day we call Thanksgiving! He said he was glad it was only once a year or he could see me weighing 300 LB! LOL! He sure seemed to enjoy himself as we do Martin! God Bless to all and may this year to come be nothing short of a year to be thankful for!

    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!

    Travis Jones! Crappie repro Hay now the other kids are going t have to stay up really late and work twice as hard now! Keep the push Travis there all watching!

    Jeremy Snider! Ocean beauty in the metal form of art! Jeremy recently sent me a price list I know this is not a solicitation post however if you’re a fan of his work as I’m you may want to PM this talented young man!

    Fishtail! Beautiful Smallie and cool wall display as well!

    Josh Knuth! Hey it was last year at this time I was out to visit you while on a Holiday to visit the in-laws! Great Bass Josh nice and soft with a touch of simple to give it life. That is what we all work to achieve well done!

    Mark! A great Bluegill from your talents this week!

    Don Patton! I should call you the Char king of Lake Erie! Super Brookie Don!

    Ron Anderson! You old fish head you! Reminiscing of a time where a touch of Pat May mixed in with a little Bill Cooke gives you a cool look to a Brookie then there is a wonderful Brookie this week from you! I love to see the super talent of the Fishheads of the Northwestern NV is and continued to be well represented and Ron you did them proud! Great Fish for any time!

    Curtis Cook! Salmo trutta looks very good on the root you display! Awesome Brown my friend!

    John Baker! Welcome!!! A great speckle trout from you to what I hope is a long time of sharing and enjoying your work! Welcome!

    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.

    I thought I would start off this week with pictures of Anglers Artistry Family Member Mr. Chad See of Elkins West Virginia! Chad continues to work so hard to pursuer the disciplines of taxidermy! Chad is a helpful contributor here and a most talented gentleman! The love of Browns I would say is the drive behind Mr. See! I hope you enjoy his brown as much as I did!

    I hope your week is productive and your freezers a bit lighter. Make money this week and be safe and enjoy your life and your gifts!

    So here goes!

    I hope you enjoy the week!
    So with out further ado let's get week #9 under way.

    Way to go Chad See ~ Beautiful Brown. Dondi, perfect golden trout.
    I was lucky enough to do a 36" monster Weakfish replica for a client of mine. First time i used one of Jeff Lumsden's eyes and i have to say, they are Great. Just what I've been looking for in a fish eye~ no boundaries.
