That thing looks great. I'll be fishing for those this summer in Playa Del Carmen. I'm all set up for some surf casting fun. If I manage a bigger one, I may have to hit you up for a trophy. I would much rather one of these, than an airbrushed piece of foam.

Humble

I know Todd is too humble to correct you..."than an airbrushed piece of foam."
His works are not pieces of foam...but are instead palm fronds that he carves and paints.
He does some really cool stuff...quite an artist!

Thank you. I thought these were made of Stainless Steel, but now I do see where it says Palm Frond. That kind of makes it even better.

My " piece of foam" comment came from my disappointment to find that many/most fish trophies, especially saltwater fish, do not contain much if any of the original fish. While they are still works of art, I would prefer this palm frond version or a stainless steel version over the standard fish trophy.
