Discussion in 'Training' started by Rick Krane, Sep 2, 2006.

    Well now I suppose that means I have to carve something. LOL I have been a little lazy lately, although I did some carving in a Moose antler this past week and now I just need to put some finishing touches on it. Then I need to start carving a fish.

    Thanks for the number information, that is a lot of students. Shows how good of a job you are doing. Keep up the good work that you do.

    If anyone is sitting around debating if they should take Rick's class, now is the time to make your reservation. It is a great class and you will learn lots of KOOL stuff......... Heck, you might even learn about FLOW.........

    I have received a few emails form the Anglers Artistry Alumni and juts wanted to share an answer to the question that posed in a few emails recently that will indeed include the Anglers Artistry Alumni In regards to the question about the weekend cook out Yes there will be one this year in August ( dates are being worked out but I will have this fix on a calendar by June first. Second the announcement on June first (1st) which has been writing about is for the general public as well as the Anglers Artistry Alumni I will post the announcement may 31 on the www.anglersartistry.com/zencart/ web site for registered members of the site to view fist then the announcement will be made public on June first on the Taxidermy net and other sites. I hope this answers some of the question I can't for obvious reasons tell you what it is as of yet but in a few short days you will know! You will like it I can say that much!

    I do hope al is well in the world of the fishheads! I do hope that this weekend you are taking tome to hour the soldiers who sacrificed so very much to give this great country it's freedom! God Bless all who have sacrifices so much!

    Spend time with your family and friends and be safe this weekend!

    As always!

What a record set in such a short period of time in getting these 200,000 hits here on the taxidermy net. Now what are you going to do for an Encore? ha. Best to you and your family in the future and what a "Hell" of a guy. Congratulations again very well deserved....

    Bill and John!!!

    Thank you guys so much for the kind words on the 200,000 mark! We all as teachers know what it takes to do what it takes to do what we do! WOW that was mouth full! You both are amount the tops in your field as well and have given so many the inspiration and the skills for the direction in making a great run at what we do! It is great teachers such as your self who push the envelope to a place where we all can be inspired to do better work! To have passion in the work we do is one thing but to have passion in helping other people do what we love to do is the gift! Thank you both!

    A GREAT DAY FOR A TALENTED AND HARD WORKING ANGLERS FAMILY MEMBER AND ONE OF VERY OWN FISHING BUDDIES!!!!!! MR. BRIAN NOODY!!!!

    I can not begin to express how happy and proud I am of one of the nice guys and talented hard working gentleman of the taxidermy world you'll ever meet Mr. Brian Noody! No one in the history of the NTA has ever won 3 National Titles in one night for fish until now! To say congratulations would be an understatement but it must be said! Challenge of the arts, New Wave Award, # National championships what a night! When Brian told me he was going to drive down he told me his Dad was going with him and if you look at life and realize that our age there are nearly no opportunities left for son and his dad to share in such a meaningful time like this weekend for the Noody Family! For a Dad to see his son win on a national stage is about as good as it gets for a son! Congratulation again Brian! Nothing happened over night but it sure can happen in one night!

    Your friend

    Rick Krane

    UPDATE!!! Brian told me this boring that another one of the Anglers Family members did exceptionally well with a beautiful Salmon! Mr. Royal Robillard from Gatineau, Quebec Canada!!! Congratulation Royal!!! Well done!

    Thanks Rick,

    It was a suprising evening at the awards dinner, there were so many great mounts there and a pretty small margin separating them. See Rick, I really do listen in class! well at least if it's about fish. ;)

    Below is a picture of the brown I competed with. My other entries were the black crappie and chain pickerel that I competed with at the state level which have been posted on here before.

    Thanks again for all you have done to help all of us move our skills at mounting fish forward.
