Hi guys,

Last month I went to a local Goldsmith shop and asked him a silly question : Could you make for me a miniature tarpon in pure gold that would look as real as the big ones?

The guy took it pretty bad, looked at me straight in the eyes and said : Are you challenging me? Then with a big smile, he added : Send me as many pictures as you can of the real fish, give me 2 weeks, come back to see the result and if you don't like it. You don't pay for it.

We shook hands, I sent him the pictures, and waited 2 weeks.

Well guys, it AMAIZING!!! I paid the guy right away, and when you will see the picture, you gonna understand.

The picture don't do it justice, hanging around your neck, it does really look like the real stuff for anybody who as ever seen a Tarpon. Just PM me and I will send you back the email address.
