He even went a half a day over for me to make sure we covered as much as possible. I have to say I have a good grasp of casting and molding now using more than one method. (My main objective for the workshop) We also did some carving and I do like his system. Less waste and more accurate than mine. And the foam you get through Rick is some really good stuff! Dense yet easy to cut and sand. Not as dusty either. The last foam I got from McKenzie crumbled in places when I cut it. Got to see some beautiful country and had some great eating. Rick and Kathy went out of their way to make my stay as comfortable as possible and of course fed me. And I got some good advice on business practices. Rick you da man. I thought I knew something about fish taxidermy being in the business since 1984 but I know nothing compared to this man. Got to meet JL from Merrimack NH too while I was there. Great guy and also very knowledgeable. May get to meet Richard Christoforo while I'm here, but making contact with my cell phone isn't working well right now. Got it wet getting out of kayak down here in Massachusetts. Hope to get that rectified today.
