    I like your red Travis great job. Fin and flight do you remember the Rick Krane crappie that was painted for you prior to your concussion? It was for a young boy that was sick. What a nice fish he did for you to give to this sick young boy. Rich I painted the brookie I bought from you and am starting the Brown trout I will post soon.

    kind of i have a picture of it and christy has told me about it but other than that i dont remember it. im getting ready to order that video from rick i look at his fish and cant think of a better retraining tool.back in the day i took a classes at a comunity collage than trained with a guy that was all about speed and used sock bodies i devloped a lot of bad habbits from him and in a way loosing this part of my taxidermy carrer i think was good.im kinda starting on a fresh slate i also had ordered a video by fran kotula on how to carve bodies and am doing that now as apposed to buying them it was a great video.with looking at the fish on here and watching videos i think im better now than i was before.i look at that fish that rick did and it still draw a blank other than what im told.thanks for helpin me try to remember and thank mr krane for helping with the fish and great videos.
