"Fishing is not an escape from life,
but often a deeper immersion into it."
- Harry Middleton
Fishing, for some, is a passion and an activity they would rather be doing then almost anything else. They say that fly fishing is more than just a sport but time to reflect on life and enjoy nature at it's best. If this sounds familiar to you, then we are sure you'll appreciate this project.
This set of models is perfect for creating a sign for a fishing lodge, retirement gift or even catch and release tournament prize plaque. There is a good chance if you're a fly fisherman then you know a fly tyer that could use a new sign for their business or a display plaque to show off their best work. Don't forget about the guides at you local fishing lodge, a gift for them might just earn you a bit of time at their best-kept secret fishing hole!
We have designed a few neat features into this project that will make it even easier to use and reuse, these include:
- Fishing hat has been modeled so that it can easily overlap the fishing basket to easily create a great layout.
- Plaque has a flat bottomed dished center so it will accept almost any model and will also let you get the most "Z" depth out of the added model, this area can also easily be VCarved onto.
- The plaque also has a small oval dished area at the bottom that can accept VCarving, the fishing fly model or even mount a real fishing fly in it to make an interesting display!
Lets hope that this project has not just inspired you to go fishing but also got you thinking about a great CNC project that just might net you the best fishing story ever!
