A classy, frameless, alternative....


The other day I arrived home to find a package on my door step. Hmmm, I thought to myself, this is either the Moldcraft Senior Wide Range I ordered from Melton Tackle to replace the one that remains lodged in a pissed off blue marlin's bill or the sleave of tobacco-less Mint Leaf chew I've been using since I quit the real stuff on September 11th. Either way, I was excited to recieve this package.

What I found was that the package contained neither of the above two items. With a return address of Seattle Washington, I knew this package was from either the great S Neil Larsen or JACK Robbins of the Long Rod. Its contents were quite exhilarating. Mr. Robbins had acquired an image of the OI at work on the high seas from a blog post I made earlier this summer, and had a canvas print made of the image. The quality and detail were startling. I could see the daunting presence of Sawyer straddling the hull, his watchful gaze fixed on the spread, while the old man nurses a healthy and evident lip bulge. The stone cold First Mate's hollow eyes were clearly visible as he surveyed the damage a wahoo inflicted on a widerange moments before the shot was taken. To say that the canvas print was anything other than exceptionally detailed and crystal clear in appearance would be a falsehood.


Thank you Mr. Robbins and thank you Easy Canvas Prints (http://www.easycanvasprints.com/), for putting the "MAN" back into my mantle...
