You're right....amazing what may seem like a minor change executed well becomes a work levels above the average. Congrats!

Hi Larry,

Saw your lure paintings and thought they looked interesting. I did some in colored pencil once I thought were cool looking. I even did a cork. Heres one I did a long time ago:

Very nice! Jack would be proud as he is also an artist of a different canvas. I'll see him this weekend at our Muskies Inc. meeting and let him know about your work. Congrats on a job well done!

thank J-Rod...
my father was a sportsfishing guide, on the big pond...(salmon, Lake Trout, coho, browns, etc)..passed on now. Love outdoor activities, living here in the north woods, a national forest in Wisconsin.

We have some fine musky patrolling the waters in areas of northern Wisconsin...and a co-worker, a teacher...himself a musky guide was so kind to share some of his lures with me. Much fun to study and paint...and one he prized was signed by Jack himself.
