One of my childhood memories hanging out with my grandfather (who was a Physics teacher and later before retirement - a Middle School Director) was fishing. I made my first rod from a curvy tree branch and fishing line. My grandfather tied a real hook to it. I don't think I caught any fish, though at four years old, hanging out with my grandfather, digging for worms, listening to chirping birds, and pretending to be a fishergirl was an absolute delight.
This fish is sort of a generic look of the fishes my grandfather use to catch. I felted the design seen through my 4-year-old's eyes.
ABOUT THE FISH:
As all other Fuzzy Lovies creations, the fish is not only a perfect prop for a store display or for storytelling, it is also a great whimsical conversation piece,
