Dad carved this wooden Rainbow trout in July of 2000 three years before he died in 2003. I am holding his fish by the John Cabot Roses in memory of him for Father's Day..

I hope all the Dad's today had a Happy Father's Day with your families..

    Thanks so much for your kind words..My father would be delighted to see his carved trout getting recognition ...He was devoted to his hobby but he never took a lesson...He had inborn talent. I so wish that I would have done a series of photographs of him carving but you don't think of those things until it is too late as you'd like to believe your parents are invincible and that there is always time to shoot those kinds of pictures!
