    Yes Dennis! Ironically, I just landed a Lake Michigan Coho Replica job with my customer's Coho registering in at 28x21. He settled for a 31x20. And this supplier also has several other Coho's in that "Fatty" size range. It looks like yours might be a Coho too? Even if it's a King, you can swap them. But, that sure looks like a Coho to me but hard to tell from this angle. Anyway, enough suspense - I'll save you some legwork. Mckenzie's Ron Reynolds line has some big arse "Ho's". Not sure of the quality, but I'll be finding out - lol! Many of the Realfish/RR blanks were very nice....

    Well Marty, customer claims it is a coho. Maybe we are talking about the same guy. First name Jason? Last name Polish beginning with a K?? Chicago area?

    Let me know.

    Yep, that's him Dennis! Oh well, at least you now know where to get ridiculously big Coho's now. Is your email addy on your website? I can email the Excel spreadsheet of the Reynolds blanks if you'd like?

    Thanks Marty. I'm too old to come over so we can beat the snot out of eachother. You found the fish fair and square, I will just have to go without eating now for lack of income. LOL

    I miss Ron Reynolds he had some real nice repros .McKenzie bought him out and has his molds but they never learned to make them as good as Ron made them. Good luck, JL
