    Start with a known measurement. Measure your hand that shows of you holding the fish....probably four or five inches? Now measure the hand in the picture by marking a small card. This is the known factor. Now starting at the nose of the fish count how many hand widths go the length all the way to the tail. You can do the same for the width or girth. But because you can't measure around the fish just add 1-1/2 widths of the hand to however many makes up the visible width. This will get you right in the ball-park. :) Good luck...JL

    JL has it right……X 2. The average mans 4 fingers will add up to 4 inches. Mark it on a card as suggested. That is your ruler. You will be very close to the length.
     
  7. Ok, I can figure out the length. So, where can I find a replica? Thanks for the info.
