  7. Great work everyone. Paul that is a great restoration and I know a lot of time. Here is a skin mount Perch
    I just finished for a customer. I had it mounted for the Michigan show but didn't have time to finish it then.

    Those two pumpkinseed sunfish are by far the best that I have ever seen. The detail in the paint schedule you used is very fine. them is outrageous to say the least. They certainly remind me of the ones I used to catch when I was a kid in Indiana. Keep up the good work...you'll go far.
     
  17. Wow those pumkinseeds are off the chart!
