Cleve Taylor has traded chaps and spurs for a rod and reel with this new carving book. He captures the foibles and follies of fishermen in four basswood figures, and reveals the subtle secrets of facial expression. Clear instructions take the carver through each step of the project from the initial pattern layout to the final painting and mounting of the finished figure. Over 235 color photographs clearly illustrate the instructions. A photo gallery at the end of the book shows several fishermen caught in situations every fisherman will quickly recognize. This is a perfect book for the intermediate to advanced carver and an inspiring challenge to beginners.
