    You guys all should have really seen Manny's Smallmouth in person.

    The entire fish, except the fins were painted with Powders by hand. Manny is really coming around fast. His work improves by leaps and bounds each year. I for one, enjoy seeing his progress each year ,and welcome him into the Masters Division in Missouri.

    The lighting in the show room wasn't the best for it, it made it look really green, but in this photo , it looks truly amazing.

    Manny is top notch. Very clean, and crisp.

    Nice work Manny, I have been doing a little molding and casting, it's fun but not super easy for sure.

    Wow, lots of nice work guys

    Manny, I have to agree with Jimmy, your work has come a long way fast. I would like to get a better look at that smallie. That is a fish few people can paint and make look convincing, they often look over painted. That one looks really good.

    Keep up the great work everyone
