This is for a close friend of mine Dave, best known as (Heathcroft). Dave is a magnificent Poser artist and creates some of the most amazing fantasy art you will ever see. His Castle Stories are always a treat and among my favorites. They are always filled with countless colorful characters and the story brings them to life. He has a great sense of humor and always manages to add a little bit to his stories. I'm grateful for his friendship to me during tough times and consider myslef lucky to have gotten to know him so well. This story is such a treat and I only hope I can bring it to life as well as he did for me. Thanks for listening,
Fish Tales (For Heathcroft): When Dave was six he lived in a hotel close to the sea. He was a fan of fishing and loved to watch the old men gather and fish off the rocks of the sea wall. One August Dave was given a fiber glass fishing pole as a present while his uncle Ralph was visiting from Lancashire. Neither of them knew much about fishing but wanted to go. Everyone came outside and his Father Malcolm stood quietly watching and smiling alongside his Mum Eileen, as if they both knew a secret. Dave's sister Maureen was laughing at him and kept him distracted while his Uncle walked down to talk to one of the men who had caught several fish. His Uncle Ralph hired one of the younger men to swim down and put one of his fish on Dave's line without him knowing. Pretty soon Dave felt a mighty tug at his line, and pulled for all he was worth. Almost instantly out came a huge grey mullet thrashing about on his pole. Dave ran around showing his family his amazing catch, and was so proud. It was only years later that they told him the truth about his first fish and this fishing tale.

I bet Dave loves this. What a wonderful story to bring to life. I love the atmosphere of your fishing village. The expression on little Daves face is perfect. You can feel the excitement coming off him, and the laughter of his sister. Wonderful work my friend.

Oh, Dave's sister looks like a classic 'Elder Sis' - Half best friend, half nemesis. My sister had (well has) a bit of that too.
My Dad loved to fish so me and my siblings all started at an early age. But, it seemed like it took forever before I landed my first one. Then one afternoon, a small perch mysteriously snapped on to my line as I was reeling in - Dad was going to move the boat. I was just amazed because the sensation through my rod was almost electrical.
It was a tiny little thing with bright green, orange and yellow colouring. But it was really too small to keep and it had to be released. Dad always released 'babies' like that so I knew this was likely to occur. Disappointed but no bothered. But we did keep it in our fish bucket until we got to shore so that Dad could get a picture of me with it first. Then we let it go.

Awesome fish tale (pun intended!) :) Wonderful story - so fun and heartwarming! This picture is just incredibly cute - love the boy's expression and pose! You can just tell he's way happy about his big catch! Excellent setting - loads of great detail in this. Love that sky. Beautiful colors in it! Great buildings for the town too. Well done, my friend! Bravo! Gotta 'hand it to ya' (ok, yes, it's another pun!) :)
