I thought I would start out this week with a few pictures of a Anglers Artistry recent student in progress Mr.David Jeffries of St. Amant Louisiana! David is here for a 5 day workshop and we have mounted a Spotted Bass complements of Randy Kittle of Georgia and have been fishhing a 40" Red Fish (aka red drum). Heres a few pictures of the Red Drum in progress. I will post the finish fished later in the week. The head and fins are not done in the pictures. Pre stages and most of the hand work done. Have a great week!!! Your friend Rick Krane Here is David with a Red fish ready to go. Here is a pre paint work picture with spots shaped out and some hand work done. Here is David in a gooofy picture. I think there may be a resemblance? LOL!
