    I see what you mean Dave. Looks like one too many teeth on the wall side and maybe your rocks are not level. Gee man , don't be so hard on yourself, you can do better on the next one. ;) LOL-------seriously-----------great fish--------------everyone.

    Dang Dave if you see boo boos in yours then when I look at mine they are real ...crappy...I wish I could do a steelhead 1/4 as good. I'd be a happy customer for sure, leaving with that.

    Great fish this week. Dave and Oliver, you guys sure those aren't still alive? Nice group of fish Aaron, Your one week looks like my whole year. Here's a display I just finish for a resort in Minnesota, the top ones a Lake Country, the other 3 are from Josh Knuth, by the way thanks Josh, very nice blanks to work with, not as nice a paint job as yours tho :)
  11. Hey cool!
    I love seeing them all painted up!
    I'm glad they worked for you.

    Thanks for all the positive words, guys!!! I made a couple "rookie" mistakes on that fish, one of them would apply to any fish mount and the second is kind of a Steelhead/Rainbow characteristic. :-[ The money will still spend the same though and my client got a super bang for his buck, but now all I see when I look at it is my boo-boo's - LOL. ::)

    AFWS, I agree with Aaron - there is a nice flowing look to your LMB and darn nice anatomy too. Tom, those Bluegills are lookin' good!
