Here Fishy, Fishy, Fishy

What movie is that line (my title) from?  Anyone? Anyone? (That is from Ferris Bueller.)  I say it plenty.  I looked up the fishy, fishy line and couldn't find a definitive answer.  Jaws? Shawshank Rredemption?  Deuce Bigalow?  Help!


Here is  Becky fun fact--that kind of stuff drives me nuts and can keep me up at night!  The worst is seeing an actor in something and not remembering what else they have been in. Luckily the internet makes it easier to find out those important questions these days so I do not have to be quite so crazy.

But, I digress...What I am trying to say is, I made a fish :).

I have made a smaller rainbow fish on a board before--SEE HERE.  This time I made a larger fish with no background board.

I have no process pictures because this was a late night, wing it, what am I making, kind of a project. I sketched a fish on a piece of brown paper.  I then placed wood scraps over it and drew with a pencil on the boards the basic angles I needed to cut.  I put it all together with thin board pieces on the back--one long one that runs the length of the fish and smaller ones on the edges of the fish.  I sanded to round out my angles.

I painted it and sanded and waxed it.  I think it is fun and whimisical!

  1. I am pretty sure the quote is from A Fish Called Wanda - the scene where Otto is torturing K-k-k-ken into telling him where the money is hidden. Just before he threatened to eat one of the goldfish alive.
