“ GOLD AT THE END OF THE RAINBOW, FINNY VARIETY”
Golden Trout, Golden Rainbow Hybrid, and Palomino Trout.
Of all my creations, I love STYLIZED works the best. It’s just I never know exactly how they’ll turn out. With realistic works I pretty much determine what’s it’s going to be. With STYLIZED creations, it’s a joint effort and the WOOD has A LOT to say about it, and, that’s what makes it both challenging and FUN. ( From MY point of view).ww
” TO THE NET”
Sometimes I just have to keep them, THIS IS ONE OF THOSE TIMES!
This Eight inch wild one is created from Tupelo and presented in a beautiful Brookie net from Kenny Nelson. The driftwood base is Box Elder found for me by my friend Joey Monteleone.
Destination, MY PERSONAL COLLECTION! I’m hoping to get a couple of more of these nets to create something I can offer .
” FOUND YOU” !
Stylized works are my favorites! I love surprises, and these creations almost always accommodate me . They hide, I seek, and the ” game is a foot”. This Rainbow was nicely snugged in a Driftwood Cedar Root and difinately did not to come out. Several times I almost sent it to the burn pile but in the end, I prevailed and was pleasantly SURPRISED.
” MICES TO PIECES, sounds good to me “!
These works are the result of a trifecta of effort by Joey Monteleone, Pat Cohen, and an old fella’s creative imagination.
I’d always heard that using a Mouse at night was the way to a BIG BROWNS heart. Never tried it myself when I was able, then got old and couldn’t . Not a total loss though , as I’m now able to crate more than I could catch! ” The Old Coot”.
Joey provided the beautiful driftwood, Pat the marvelous Mouse, and an old fella the rest.
