    Dave, as always your work and art inspires me. You are the number1 guy for those steelheads. Fantastic. Thats all I can say. You are a scary gifted guy.

    Great work this week to all. I have a nice reproduction rainbow in the works. It should be at my door on monday. Looking foreward to seeing if I remember how to paint a fish.

    Jimmy, Jeff, and Travis; thanks, I'm glad you guys like the Steelhead! :)

    Travis, I don't think I can do them in my sleep yet - the evidence is that I was still recently working on fish from 2003/2004 - LOL.

    Same with me.

    It is getting better and better what I see here, although every week I think: This cant´t be topped! Hope to post something next week.

  9. Here's a customer bass I recently finished. Arp DALMB 53. This customer gave me a ton of pics of this fish because he son released it back to the pond. It had several characteristics that I added to the repro to try to really recreate his fish. The spiny dorsal was actually missing a spine in the middle, it had a decent notch in the caudle fin and some really yellow plates on the head.
    This fish also got a custom made eye using Josh's method.

    Travis, that Largemouth is soft enough to pet! It's a beauty, and the mods that you did to it are totally tits.

    mk, very cool little Pike skin mount! Wow, what a gut on it - that's what I'd look like if I was a Pike.
