Great item! I'm a big flathead catfisherman, so this was perfect for my collection!

It was a big hit with my brother who regularly participates in catfish tournaments.

Perfect!! Love It!! Thanks!! Your The Man!!

Fun catfish, skillfully crafted & painted... love the fins & whiskers! Bought a 3-footer as a graduation gift for my son, the catfish man... as soon as this fish is "released" from his hiding place in my closet, will upload photo of JDArtDesigns handiwork. Thanks so much!

This is absolutely beautifully done! I'm really shocked how nice it looks and crafted - well done!
