    I want to thank these Gentleman and the others who have taken the time to advance or begin their fish taxidermy road with me this summer! As we gear up for the fall calsses I will post new photos from time to time of more student work. Some of the fish you see are the very first fish some of these folks have ever done. I congratulate any one who takes the steps to improve or enhance their efforts in the art of taxidermy!

    Now get to mounting more fish! LOL!

    Yes! I know the brookie says steelhead! LOL!!!!!

    My Best!

    Rick,..........

    Great work your students have done! I have a question on the photography..... Did you photoshop the pics and then post them to a black background....or did you take the pics with a black background?

    Nice photography as well!

    Thanks,

    :)

    I saw a lot of these fish in person and they were great. I met some of these men and they were all great people with a fish wish and they got that wish at Rick's.
    Cory, I fished right aside the dock you got the BIG BASS but I didn't get him. We did catch allot of fish though. The wife got a 4 1/2 LB L M Bass on the 3rd or 4th cast she made.

    Hey Cecil,

    I know that I promote your fish services as offten as I can and you know I recommend you to my students but I'm wondering why you have post here on this string not once but twice and never once commented on the great efforts of the folks who took the time to buy fish from you and did some really great work? All your asking is if they are yours? Yes My Students buy fish form you? ??? I know you like to post every where lately(LOL) but if you want to talk about your fish at least talk about their efforts and then your fish OK.

    Rick,

    Sorry if it appeared that way, but the fact that the work is so good -- since they are students of yours -- is a given to me. I guess I assumed that was already known. Yes, that is incredible work for first time students! Your reputation precedes you, and the pics you post are so outstanding, whether it's your work or one of your students, that I guess it never dawned on me I should pat someone on the back.

    Thank you for pointing that out to me. God knows I'm misunderstood enough on here. :-[ :-[ :-[

    hey Cecil!

    LOL No biggy! You Know that I'm very protective of my students and I want them not me to be acknowledged for their efforts. You me and any one who provides the art of teaching and boy it can be an art form some days (LOL) should take great pride in their students as it would be their time and effort is of great value and some times great sacrifice. The courage it takes some times for folks to leave there homes and be away spending hard earned money to learn form as I said you me or any one else is a true honor for any of us. I do take great pride in my students and I'm so proud when others look at their work with critique's and encouragement. This is what give some one the fortitude to stay in the business or develop the craft!

    Well Monty Artrip is waiting and He is still coming down for the 10 O'Clock teaching session lat evening! There are no clocks in the shop and we do go a bit pass 5 on most days! LOL!!!!! Monty is a great guy and I can't wait for to see he work! He will be something to compete with. He brought some of your big Brookies out here! So be on the brookie watch!

    My Best and get some work done today!LOL!!!

    Gee thanks Rick! Monty and I compete in the same category at the Indiana show, and we will probably be competing against each other for best of category and best of show.

    Just kidding of course.
