    That's a good looking pike, I see you maintained that full look did you crave your own body?

    Thanks 7pt,
    and Hambone,
    I cant take your sentence too literal the way you spelled carve, that just wouldnt be right....LOL. But, yeah, the carved body is on the previous page. I COULD NOT find a purchased body (was thinking since I wasnt very familiar with doing pike that I would buy a body) that had the girth or character and I'm glad I decided to carve it. I'm better schooled for the next one though............

    Yeah that is funny, I had to read it twice to see what was so funny.
     
  7. Fine job on your first Pike Brian. I know you learned tons by doing him and can't wait to see your next endeavor. Nice job on carving your own body and painting. Pike are a tough fish to pull off and you did well.

    Yeah, painting is a touch more involved for sure to get it look like it's not painted. Lot of work just to get the fins looking decent.....and ONE of next jobs (King repro, Crappie skin mount and perch) to do is a perch repro some fine gentleman gave me..... ;) (thanks again for that Randy)...........
