IMO an easy way to make fast cash is mutually exclusive of quality art. Sorry.

yeah you prob don't understand that for me fast cash is about 5 months of work. as for quality, i'm not talking inticate bullshit, i'm not an artist, but a fabricator. this stuff will actually be welded. not a shitty little weld on metal scrapped from tuna cans. but i guess it's your opinion and your statement does make sense.

and wik: that stuff is crazy!!

mine will be a lot less intricate.

Most guys that are starving buy a steak....This kid buys a new fly line.

I have seen his work and most say it is pretty good stuff. Why go to a store and support them when you can support a high school kids fly fishing habit. At least your money will end up back in the fly fishing industry ;)

I will have some in my yard for sure.

Salmo_g: obviously you dont know what its like to be a student.
Obviously?

So when I was a student, I didn't know what it was like to be me? Sounds crazy to me. The cash I earned was never easy, never fast, nor was it the result of quality art. The notion that it could be still seems like a disconnect to me.

ok, so we don't know any of eachother, so why argue? you aren't interested so quit beating around the bush, trying to start problems. some people want some of my basic "quality built", not necessarily designed art.

SB32,

In my first post I reacted to your statement that seemed incongruous to me. In my second post I responded to a statement about me. I'm not arguing with anyone. When you qualified your "fast cash" as about five months, that made a big difference. When someone takes about making fast easy cash, I usually think that translates into about one day and little effort. Otherwise it's neither fast nor easy. Anyway, good luck with your art. I like art, so I guess that's why your post caught my eye.

On the Bitterroot is a fly shop/house belonging to John Foust, a legendary guy in that area. He has a 5' high Royal Wulff metal sculpture in his yard. I don't know if you could do that, but a hook with metal spikes welded circumferentially for the hackle, some metal tail fibers etc would be very cool! Sorry I don't have a picture of that one! rick

thank you for clarifying. i hope i didn't come off as hostile. it's just that if i can sell a lot of art this semester, i can spend less time working this summer, and more time on the road to spend more time on the water. i posted this up because i figured you guys would be interested. in every piece i will make, i will put the same amount of effort into every piece. i don't want to earn a bad name for myself. i have worked a lot for only being 17, and i want to be an entrepeneuer (spelling?)

thanks for the good luck, i will need a lot!
