Black Skimmer Part 6 / Oil clay surfcaster

Continuing to refine the beak on the black skimmer. I will be edge joining the basswood boards for the base this week, these will become the water the skimmer is flying over.  I am excited to begin carving the water and to get the beak immersed within it. 

 I watched this guy, back in late November or early December, 2016 poach some short stripped bass in Rockaway Beach,... he dragged three of them back to his house on a stringer.... the stringer is incomplete here- I'll update with a better photo soon. I am excited to see how I can develop additional clay studies of fishermen.
