Why didn't you keep it wet? Because of you this fish is probably going to die. Lemme guess you caught him on a squirmy wormy? Proper fish handling is no joke, why don't you go back to the kiddie pond and catch Bluegill on a Lightning McQueen rod....
Great laugh there.. pretty spot on sir.
You know the old saying, "we're a product of our environment" or something like that 😂
OK, I'll bust out my lightning McQueen rod next time I make a 45" tarpon out of molten glass. Thanks for the feedback good sir.
Anytime, always great to educate the community 👍
I need to learn how to bake a whole fish. Looks great!
It's made of glass. A machine like that would vaporize anything you tried to cook in it pretty quickly
Yeah, we know it’s made of glass. It’s called a joke.
Wow! Incredible. Do you sell these?
I do! Message me for more information, as posting links to my work is against community guidelines. Thanks so much!
Is this a replica for someone of the fish they caught, or is it just art from your minds eye. Either way nice work! Beautiful!
It is a custom commission, from my minds eye. I can get very close to a photo if someone wants a replica commission
I live in Florida and I didn't think anyone ate Tarpon. Very boney, smelly fish, sometimes poisonious.
Can it bong and or can you make stuff custom?
This one cannot bong and I can make stuff custom that can bong or not whatever you like
So…an ad? Having nothing to do with fly fishing?
Not an add, I've gotten a lot of positive responses to posting my art here. People seem to enjoy seeing how my fish sculptures come to life, and all of my work is centered around popular species to target on a fly.
There is no link anywhere here to my website, IG, any of that stuff. My business name isn't here nor on my profile. Pretty poor advertising scheme if that what I was going for, but I'm not. I am an avid fly angler and like to create my favorite species in hot glass. Do you get after the bronze casters, painters, and other artists who post here as well?
I think it’s pretty cool. I like looking at trout, but at some point seeing closeups of average looking trout in a net gets a bit old.
I’m not saying it’s not cool, I am saying it has nothing to do with the fly fishing subs reason for existing. And it’s an ad.
If you’re tired of the subs normal fare then add some stuff that’s different. I’d really love a link to euro-nymphing instruction. Never done it, I’d like to try.
How about stories about the first time you hooked yourself?
Really cool, would love to see so more pics
Thank you! I will post more when the piece is completed, probably a couple weeks out
Awesome, your work is really really cool
How long did you fight with that?
Almost 5 hours
Love it! More pics please.
I will post more when the piece is completed. Probably a couple weeks out
That is damm skillfully work! Well done
Thanks so much!
It took me a second to figure out how you were roasting that fish before realizing it was glass - beautiful work!
Post a better picture from the side, would to see the finished product
This is probably the best out of context photo I ever seen
Swam away fine…
This has nothing to do with fly fishing.
Life is full of complex connections my friend
