...  The attention to detail would be outstanding for a long time bow maker, but for a first bow it's even more admirable.  ...

DITO!!!

My hats off young man!
Seing your first bow I'm wondering how your 100th will look like ...
Fine job, you both can be proud.

Great story and one heck of a nice bow. Congrats to both of you.

To start with, wolf fish skins are not easily obtained. I have been looking for years and am coming up empty in all my efforts. Secondly, once you've seen the fish you understand why they are called such.

Ronan, I am impressed with your work, sir. Well done!

It's one thing to have talent. It's another to have it at that age. Excellent job to both of you, and with more than the bow!

A real work of art.
I've seen live Wolf Fish at an aquarium, brutal prehistoric looking buggers. Beautiful skins though.

Everything about the bow is top notch.

Really awesome. Love the bow. Love the story. Really hoping he kinda gets the bug.

Definitely vote worthy.

Beautiful bow with great attention to detail. Not to many kids would have the patience to produce such fine workmanship. Definitely a BOM candidate. Both father and son should be proud.
