  • New Patterns...

    today I volunteered to do another Grand prize for the raffle at our next fishing get together in October..I thought about doing one of Old Griz's trout patterns but I just don't know if my saw can handle all those holes so I ordered a couple patterns from Judy Roberts...
    I'm going with this one for the raffle prize...

    a lot of the guys say that I do too many trout and they would like to see a bass now and then...

    I'm sure glad that I'm not in Canada because they said it can take 8 weeks for delivery..I've got 5 weeks...

    what a bummer....

    since I'm between projects I figured it would be a good time to clean up my shop..
    it was pretty bad, I finished 2 project out of that mess..
    half way through clean up my shop vac catches on fire, no harm done other than a smoke filled house and that aired out quickly..

    so it is a good idea to clean out the shop vac now and then....

    I've got my steelhead trout hung in our newly redecorated quest bath and it looks great. the only problem is that you only see it when your in there so I guess I'll have to keep plenty of beer on hand....

    I also got the salmon ready to be mailed out..
    I sold it to a fishing friends wife, it was going to be a birthday present but now it's an anniversary present..I saw the guy yesterday at our committee meeting and he had no clue that he will be receiving it..

    don't tell any one but I let her have it for the cost of materials and shipping.
    the labor will be my gift to them...so I only got $35 for it...

    I wasn't going to do a grand prize but yesterday at our meeting, everyone told me how they appreciated all the work I have done and that they we're not going to ask me to do another...
    I pop up and said WHAT....what do you mean you don't need me to do another piece...
    so here I am awaiting for my new patterns to get here so I can get started on another project....

    btw, I got the ok for a new shop vac...

        That's a sharp looking pattern - I'm sure you will do it justice!
        Glad you got by with just some smoke in your house -

          Hi Trout. all your work looks so good. lots of thought. and plans, and all the work involved. you relly are a thoughtfull man. for sure. looks like you have all your friends and clubs needs at interest. I for one.... am very proud of you. you are a master of trout for sure. Ps. I am not a bass lover. but you keep going, we love all you do. Ok whats this stuff about.
          (((((((((((I wasn't going to do a grand prize but yesterday at our meeting, everyone told me how they appreciated all the work I have done and that they we're not going to ask me to do another...
          I pop up and said WHAT....what do you mean you don't need me to do another piece..))))))))).
          so here I am awaiting for my new patterns to get here so I can get started on another project....

          so did you think they didn't wont your projects anymore?? or maybe they are embarest no one else has done anything. ??? so you; have a new project planed, and ordered the patten. and now what. ?? what a bummer. did i get something rough. or do you feel left out. Trout i think folks are just over whelmed. with your talent. I don't think they really wont you to stop. they just can't keep up with you. just my 2 cents worth. I know we love your talent here. Evie

            Evie..

            before I found SSW, the only ones I had to show off my work to was my fishing friends over on anglernet.net
            one of my first pieces that I did...I posted a message that I was going to raffle it off and if anyone wanted to win it all they would have to do is reply to the post..I had over 50 sign up for that raffle. we took all the name and put them in a hat and Mrs.Trout drew the lucky winner...
            I gave 4 pieces away with my on line raffles...
            then everyone wanted to buy one, I could of make a fortune from them but that would take all the fun out of it.....

            Then our fishing get togethers started getting bigger and bigger...
            we started out by having a small raffle after Saturday night dinner with a couple of thing that had been donated and I did a piece for the grand prize...
            we also recognize members for their contributions and I would do a small piece and present it to them as a thank you...

            we now have over 100 people attending our get together and so much stuff gets donated to the site that the committee felt that I have done my share with all my contributions....
            I then heard that most people would rather win one of my pieces than the $150 fishing rod so that's what keeps me going...
            plus to see the person face when they win one of my pieces is priceless....

            now I have you guys too....

                Trout,

                I think you got suckered <<LOL>>

                Knowing you as they do, they probably knew you would not accept having done enough.

                So now you are happy to donate, they are happy not having had to ask, and someone will be happy to receive.

                An all around winning situation.

                Congrats on being so appreciated, it is a testimony to your talent.

                BTW, what would be wrong with you selling some of those trophies and making some money in the process? you could buy more wood, maybe upgrade your saw or fishing/camping gear. You are allowed to profit from that great talent of yours.

                Respectfully,
                Marcel

                  Gosh Trout. how proud we are of you. I can see now , why they would have said enouph .

                  we now have over 100 people attending our get together and so much stuff gets donated to the site that the committee felt that I have done my share with all my contributions....
                  I then heard that most people would rather win one of my pieces than the $150 fishing rod so that's what keeps me going...

                  I think i would have chose your pieces too. they are so awsome. who could have chose anything differant. I could always use a new rod. for sure. but a Trout aregeanal. is that a word. now thats something you just dont get to fish for every day. your a artist for sure. and hard to beet. your friend Evie
