I really have half a mind to try it on bass this spring! How knows, they might just go for it.

This was modeled off the Nauset Lighthouse in MA. I've attached a photo I made before I shipped it to Will and here is a link to the inspiration: http://www.capecod-l...uset-light.html

Next year for Christmas presents I am going to tie a series of New England light houses for friends and family.
