    I’ve been asked hundreds of times to do a seminar on fish at the state shows, I will only do children’s seminars, there is defiantly not enough emphasis put on teaching our kids of today

    Very nice fish work Carl! Fantastic to see so many young ladies interested in fish taxidermy. My hats off to you for sharing your knowledge with so many young individuals. Their smiles say it all and being mask less, sure proves that!

    At the awards banquet we call the kids up to give them a necklace medal
    And the smiles on their faces get me all choked up
    And it is amazing at the girls wanting to learn
    And a woman the competes is a tough one to beat
    Women have a better eye for detail

    Trapper2016 Thanks for this awesome forum!

    Thats awesome Clew. I am trying my hand at more fish. These are my first largemouth, grayling, and smallmouth replicas. Interesting learning process with the help of Ricks DVDs. Hopefully the next ones will be better.

    Here are a few others I have been working on. This one is a Red Coney from Archie Phillips. I also purchased a porcupine fish figurine, molded and cast it, and tried my best to paint it up realistically. Hard to work with something so small though.

    I also messed around with an ARP bluegill replica. I had practiced with this blank for a while so eventually i just whited it out and tried to paint it like a Red Eared Sunfish Illustration I found online that i thought was cool. Certainly not lifelike but fun to mess around with. The earthworm did come out okay though.

    I also tried my hand at one of the Muskie baitfish replicas from Lake Country just to practice on. I tried to scale tip it, but it didn't work out all that well.

    Trapper, nice fine detail work on your scales. To bad your Red Coney had such thick fins Rock Hind 1.JPG

    I’ll never do a nother refurbish. So much bondo involved in this one to rebuild areas. They wanted it changed to a transitioning male. Things like 40 years old. No paste. Skin was boraxed and put on the form. Such a waste of my time, materials and a pain in the ass. And no I didn’t charge enough to do what was done. On the plus side I painted it in less then 3 hours. Parts are all my molds.
