It’s not a bad start…I would definitely register a final print more straight but, again, just looking at what lines to keep and what lines to carve out.  The bummer is when you get a bit excited and you accidentally carve out something, well, you really needed.

 But that’s what I rather like about this medium.  It wouldn’t be any fun if it wasn’t a challenge!  By the way, Good Day refers to a good day fishing, of course!
