Slide of the Month Extra- Philmont Fish Camp


July 2022

Time to make: 3 hours

Finishing: 1 hour

Original design:  Philmont / Bill Macfarlane

Day 4 and we are headed to Fish Camp was one of Waite Philips remote camps (called Rayado Lodge) for It is said, the area was one of Waite Philips favorate areas. While you can fish here with gear furnished by the camp (if you have a New Mexico fishing License ) the best part is you can use a fly you tied yourself. You can bet I'll have a hand tied fly attached to my hat! (But at $56 for a non-resident fishing license, I won't be fishing.)

Carved from Southern (pallet) pine there, are several levels to this slide with the fish being the top level and the background being the lowest level.  The slide is painted with hobby paints and the lettering is using waterslide paper. A couple of coats of poly finish it off.
