    Been bowhunting out of state for darn near a month and haven't contributed lately. But here is a couple fish, the cutbow trout was finished a few weeks ago and the bass just the other day. The bass blank I think I posted before but its a different client and diff. paint job.

    Fun project I finally finished for CEO Bill Downey in Ohio. He is a very patient man, and even drove 13 hours to pick up components of this in person. We had a nice talk while looking across the lake at fall colors. You can sense his passion for fish. Track lighting, he went whole hog on this. Now, for your own office........just send a deposit and you can have a neat office too! LOL

    Thanks for the nice compliments on my fish everyone. Jimmy, LOL, "King of Largemouths" LOL. Is that good or bad? :D No king here, just a fish head trying to make a living.
    Den, nice fish scene. Randy, you made those fish blanks look good with your paint jobs. I think I may purchase some of those to make a quick buck.
    Everyone have a great week.
