It wasn't long ago that I was thinking about my childhood and came across a wonderful memory of a trip I took with my father. We had the opportunity to go to Canada and fish some areas that had been closed to fishing for years. During that trip I landed several Northern that were in the 30" range, but ended up landing two that hit the 40" mark easy. All I have left is the great memory of that time with my father and a few pictures of our catches.
To make a long story short, I was thinking that I wanted to keep those memories alive so I commissioned Tom Wendel to do a replica of the pike that I caught. All I can say is WOW! He did such a spectacular job and I could not be happier with the results. The memories are strong and I am greatfull to Tom for his work.
Thanks Tom!

Any memories with Dad are usually GOOD ones.
Nice job by Tom as usual.
