Nice form...it's hard to nail the angles on Tangaroa just right, and you've done it well. I've only carved three in my own career. You'll be ready for fishing soon!

Very Nice! That guy is goin to look great with stain. Stained basswod will give him excellent tonal variation. Can't wait to see him done.

Nothing is 100% perfect, but this little guy is really, really, really, really, really close to it !
