Product Review by Jim Matuga
Topwater Hit just may be the perfect Holiday gift

Have you ever wished that you could find the perfect thing for your home or office that would clearly communicate your love of bass fishing to your friends and visitors? I'm not talking about the talking fish "Bigmouth Billy Bass" either.
In my office, you'll find a ficus tree adorned with largemouth bass Christmas tree lights (not too tacky), photos of memorable fishing trips from the past few years, and the latest edition of the Bass Pro catalog. But the one item that really sets the tone and says "I love bass fishing" is Top Water Hit. This is a life-like replica of a trophy Largemouth Bass rising from cover (for one of her favorite top-water lures) just as the angler pauses in his retrieve. The explosive strike will long be remembered.

George W. Kruth has been creating award winning wildlife art for over 20 years. He is a master carver and highly sought-after carving instructor. Collectors in North America, Europe, and Asia prize his true-to-nature work. For the past several years the Danbury Mint has been successfully marketing George's work to discerning collectors -- outdoorsmen, naturalists, hunters, and fishermen -- all wanting authentic limited editions of the finest wildfowl carving to be found anywhere.

The original wildlife art pieces are carved and painted by Master Wildlife Artist George Kruth and are recreated in cold-cast porcelain, a method favored by artists and collectors for its ability to hold fine detail.

Kruth has won numerous "Best in Show" awards, "Peoples Choice" awards and has been designated the prestigious title of Master Wildfowl Artist by the Ward Foundation.

Kruth has produced six instructional video tapes on how to carve and paint birds, including two videotapes in which he is the instructor. George has been a feature writer for Wildfowl Carving & Collecting magazine.

George has been a lifelong student of the natural world, but credits much of his phenomenal success to his close association and friendship with the finest wildlife artists in the world.

George and his wife Vikki reside in Moon Twp, PA.

I'm sure you will agree that each and every sculpture is stunning in its authenticity and will surely enhance the homes and offices of discerning collectors. And with the Christmas Holidays just around the corner - this would be the perfect gift for the avid bass angler. For more information call (724) 457-1700 or visit
