  1. Really nice looking Pike so far Brian. Now that all the nasty work is done the fun painting begins and that fish looks fun to paint with great detail showing. Pike are a hard fish to skin mount but the more you do the faster you get, but they still take time. It takes me a better part of a day to skin a big Musky and it kicks my butt. TOday is a fun day because I got to start painting again. Here are 3 bass I started on this morning and almost have them done. I also washed 62 sets of paired fins and 22 replicas I cast over the last week.

    Randy, you must be able to paint fish with your eyes closed you do so many !
    I could not even imagine doing that many fish, hats off to you for keeping the standards so high.

    UK sea run brown trout eyes, Jeffs eyes with pupils, but I had to alter the shape which only took a minute. There is a green metallic cast on the top of the eyes which the camera has not really picked up. The black speckles were done with an air brush, (Pescado)The sclera will be painted over later when I paint the fish. I find it easier to paint it on the outside !
