I made this one for a swap:



She is wet felted from natural colored Finn, with dyed prefelts for the tail and fins. The mouth and lure are wired for shape, and the teeth are shell spike beads. This was felted around a resist, with the tongue and teeth added later.



I included two insulated wires in the lure, and attached an led to the end with the battery inside of the mouth.

Aaaagghhh! When I was little, I had a book that was some sort of "Our Natural World" encyclopedia. About half-way through it, though, was a page of unusual fish that included a particularly horrifying drawing of an angler fish, and although I liked the rest of the book, I never, ever took it off the shelf for fear of opening it to that page.

Now, of course, I think angler fish are very, very cool.
