    Sorry for the blank post. Tried to upload photos and was having issues.

    The question is I have a replica (steelhead) with the standard straight up full extended dorsal fin. I wanted one that is relaxed so it appears to be more natural. Can these be bought? Thanks

    GOOD QUESTION!!! I have passed on a few blanks for that very reason! Only thing I could think of would be if there was a fish market close by, get a dorsal fin from a similar fish and mold it. It is nice to have fins available in a relaxed position!

    If you can't find one,do what the wood carvers do...carve one and mold it. Good luck. JL
