With a mighty maw and a flickering flag of bait, Anglerfish awaits the next meal. A smooth, cold fish, yes, most refreshing. Or perhaps a nice, crunchy crustacean. Even a slimy squid would do. Anglerfish can wait all week, fishing…fishing….
Anglerfish is made with dark annealed wire. That mighty maw is made with what I believe is called an external tooth lock washer, which I curled over to resemble the shape an a mouth. The "eyes" or should I say eye sockets, are a pair of metal pieces I found in some scrap metal findings I have. The top fin piece is a metal tubing, and I added that square bluish metal doodad because I thought it just fit. The tail is made with the type bars - also known as strikers - from an older typewriter. In all, as you can tell, the embellishments for this fish are literally metal junk. The base is a backplate for a drawer pull.
Anglerfish measures 8 inches tall by 3 inches wide (width of the base) by 9 inches long.
