A few weeks ago, I attended the Missouri Show. While there I finally got to meet my internet friend Jimmy Lawrence of CO. During our conversation, I brought up I needed to order a 43" King Salmon replica and I told Jimmy where I was going to order it from. He then told me about a replica company he used called JG Replicas. He also told me a little about the blanks and how much he liked them. I got on there website (www.jgreplicas.com) located the perfect bland for the job. To my amazement, it looked good and was over $100 cheaper than the original blank I was about to order. Over the weekend, the blank arrive and today, I unboxed it. I was amazed at the quality and very impressed with the workmanship. I honestly believe it will be a snap to finish out and paint. So, I want to highly recommend JG Replicas and thank Jimmy Lawrence for turning me onto them.
