I like the rules. My kids love playing. Just need to add adult version. Loser each round drinks, haha.

Sure that'll work, good thing I went with a Safety pin! :o The more you drink the worse the cast will be. Could be a winner!

Got out for a few pics of #20 while the rain slowed. It has rained here almost everyday since the beginning of Winter.

Knothead Trout #20 Alligator Gar is done! It's a gift for Nephew #8. Any comments, curious what you all think?

The alligator looks great. The star shaped knot is pretty cool. I like how you left it right in the middle of the top of the mouth, and at the tail. That's going to be a challenging game to land, should be fun.

Thanks Jeremy,
Those stars were neat, amazing they traveled through the length of wood like that. Tried to work them in as much as I could. I only wish I knew it was an Alligator Gar before I started it. The snout wasn't big enough so I had to splice one on. You have a keen eye! The game is difficult to land. Easy enough to hook but Gar must be played right or it comes unhooked easily because if the long body. I still have yet to catch an actual Gar. The real thing has also proved difficult to land w/ a Tenkara rod and fly too.

My wife and I put our knothead trout on a small raft in our pool and GAME ON! :D Makes it a little more realistic, having the water involved. Just curious, how many have you created so far?

20! The raft sounds great! I think seeing the SP Kebari undulating in the water would be fun on a miss too. I'm so glad you & the family enjoy the game Jeremy!
