    Nice walleye wishbone. I also like the bass mount in the corner of the pic, I've never thought about putting a mount in a corner like that, that's a great idea, plus you can't see the seam or anything!

    Wow is all I can say. Its been a long time since I posted on this thread. I know why now. I'm almost embarrassed to show my work next to the great work here. This is a skin mount walley just finished and out the door. I didn't get a picture of the one just before this one that I thought was a little better. Again great work to every poster this month.

    Here is a little restoration work "before and after" - customer didn't want any sculpting on head because in this way his trophy (from year 1996) will loose authenticity ;)
    He was happy :D
