I don’t have a pattern. A friend of mine sculpted the 36″ long 20lb. basswood salmon in his workshop and I found the patterns in Celtic design books and on the internet. Note that all the fins are sculpted separately and fit into holes in the body. Thanks for your interest! My salmon is currently on exhibit in a gallery in Glens Falls, NY and is attracting a lot of attention, so much so that I am encouraged to consider having both a whale and a tuna of similar size or even bigger sculpted for me. The whale will tell the story of Jonah in chip carving and the tuna will be chip carved with Polynesian patterns. Best of luck if you embark on a similar project.
