A BIG Shout out to Dan Blair! Dan B is a popular regular on one of my favorite fishing forums. Little did I know, but, he is also a WORLD RENOWNED wildlife artist and writer! His pieces are truly astounding! I have been blessed to run across his track. He is not only a master sculpture - his wildlife paint jobs are nothing short of biblical!
God created fish- then Dan B came along and breathed life into them!
If you like fish or fishing you MUST peruse his website-
A shout out!
WOW, John, you flatter me, my friend. I'll have a hard time living up to such praise. ;o) I'm proud to say I'm not alone. Yahoo says I have the largest fish carving group online in the world with more than 500 members from over 2 dozen countries. We have used the quote that suggests the fish we enter in the World Fish Carving Championships are so beautiful that even real fish envy them. LOL
John: For any of our fellow fish and fishing enthusiasts, they may want to know that the 2013 WORLD TAXIDERMY & FISH CARVING CHAMPIONSHIPS will be held May 7-11, 2013 in Springfield, Illinois. This truly IS the biggest and greatest show of its kind on the entire planet. It is SO big that it only happens every other year. Entries number in the hundreds and come from around the globe from 20+ countries and from the VERY best artists in the world. Eight years ago, the BBC sent an eleven man crew over from the UK to film the event. Unless you've ever been to one, you have NEVER seen anything like this before. If at all possible, you will not want to miss it. You will NEVER forget it and you will NEVER regret it.
