My dad's the guy who can buy himself anything he wants, so he's hard to buy for...therefor I make him things. Here's a papier mache fish. He has a newspaper ball armature and is detailed with drywall compound. Kinda slapped together. I just used a stick as a fishing rod and some wire for the hook with a polymer worm. Hope he likes him! He's got hooks on his back and the fishing rod also has hooks. He's for hanging at our cottage.

This is really cool, I'm sure he'll love it. Plus, there's nothing better than homemade.
