Brook or Rainbow trout doesn't matter, I love to fish for and carve trout as well as the warm water species like the walleye and smallmouth bass at the top of the page.

I really enjoy spotting a woodcock in the forest when I go up to fish the Pere Marquette River in Michigan.  Only 8 inches long and 4 inches high, a woodcock carving adds a pop of color to a shelf.

A frequent visitor to my feeder, the cardinal is a joy to carve on a cold winter afternoon.   He is 8 inches long and mounted a birch log.  $50 plus shipping.  I also carve female cardinals which I think are even prettier than the males!

Wood Duck

That sounds redundant since this Woodie is made of basswood.  Add a little color to your cabin with a wood duck carving.
