    The Month in Fish Pictures" ~Year 5~ October 2011 !!!!!!!!

    The warmest of welcomes from Reno Nevada! Fall is in the air and the Sportsman are out in the woods! I do hope that you’re autumn is profitable and you all enjoy a great season this fall! I’m working on a project here in Nevada and California this month and will be again over the winter I will share photos with you all when it comes together!

    I’m visiting with long time friend and Game Room designer/ Taxidermist Mr. Kevin Libby of trophy room services over the past week and Kevin shared some of the spectacular game rooms he has designed! Truly inspiring to see how planning and hard work with a lot of creativity come in to play when designing and creating a Game Room!

    What an outstanding Month in Fish pictures this past last month as I took sometime this morning and looked at some truly inspiring works of fish art!
    We share in fish pictures to find a common place with friendliness and positive comments of motivation as a great place to start in upward in direction of inspiration in being a fish taxidermist! I wish all the best to folks competing in the up coming year and I do wish all the very best in the pursuits of good fish work!

    I do hope you have the opportunity to be thankful for your gifts of great passion and talent as an artist! It is a blessing to me for our lives to be joined from time to time to share and learn from one another so thank you for your great taxidermy work and my your lives continue to be blessed with inspiration!!!!

    I want to personally say thank you for letting me join you again each installment of Fish Pictures to share in your successes and accomplishments! I have seen first hand the great strides so many have made with beautiful fish work! Good for you and congratulations on your hard work!!!!

    I want to also thank all of the great contributors who not only share their personal great talents and work but also rather give such positive inspiration to all of us!

    From beginner's to the best in the world we all join in every month in a critique free and hassle free string with nothing more then great artist and inspiring fish taxidermist and carves get together to share with one another their praise and inspiration of good will and friendship to one another. No egos just friendly folks who appreciate the efforts of others!

    I want to start the month of October with a wonderful story of a three generation story about a father and his son who came to NH to fulfill a dream for a Grandfather. Our great friend and forum contributor Mr. Brad Jones of Cicero, Indiana came back to New Hampshire for a visit and to catch up on some fun and fishwork! This trip Brad brought his son Jason to work on a great project of personal meaning for the Jones Boys! Brad and Jason created a beautiful Crappie mount for Brad’s dad Homer Jones! Homer a long time sportsman and hardcore Crappie fisherman was given this beautiful work of fish art in honor of a family’s respect and love for a Dad who took the time to teach the outdoors and sporting to a son! How cool is that!

    I hope a few moments of encouragement that every one starts somewhere and can accomplish great this with hard work and great passion for the art of fish taxidermy!

    So here goes!

    I hope you enjoy the week! See you in November!

    So here we go and here is to a great October in fish pictures!!!! Enjoy!

    You're Friend

    Hope to see you soon!

    My Best!
