    I always like to come here and admire the great fish. I haven't posted in a while so here is my humble addition, a commercial yellow perch w/ carved bod, l/s, and still life lenses. By the way Josh, thanks for the tutorial, you make it easier and easier to arrive at acceptible results for those of us less talented fishhds!!!

    Cory Keep an eye on quality!

    Here is my post for the week. Commercial Canadian walleye. These fish always seem to be much darker and bolder/golder than the mud flat walleyes of Kansas.
