    That is a much better fish than you usually post. That fish right there is very well done!!! Very nice tipping, and very pleasing overall look. I like it quite a bit. Ive watched you post fish for quite some time now, and you get better and better each time.

    Well done sir!!!!

  6. Jemmick, Rich B. & Bill4bass,
    Thank you for the encouraging commets ! It is really nice to recieve the positive feedback from others in the business, such as each of you !
    Rich's blank had good flow to it, with an appealing "S" Curve, which gave a good canvas to work with.

    Thank you Sir !
    Basically I am taking more time with each fish I do, paying close attention to Reference pictures, and trying to practice all of the techniques learned over the past 10 years...still a work in progress.
    Thank you Jimmy !

    Nice white crappie Jknuth.
    I never could catch a fish on this crank bait so I made some use out of it.

    Excellent work Josh and Don, great Steelie. Timjo, you really smoked that Crappie/Bullgill display.....NICE!
  15. Timjo nice job on the Crappie and Gill. I don't see many gill mounts look good and you did it with that one.
  16. Timjo

    I LOVE that Pectoral fin on that gill. Nice action, its subtle but adds a ton of life.
    Nice fish!
