  1. Show Us Your Favorite Fishy!

    Well, we've had Brachiopods and Trilobites, so I figured let's give fish a try! I am going to start this off with my Enchodus marchesettii from the Hakel Quarry of Lebanon. Not only is this fossil 100% complete with the only restoration done was repairing the matrix itself, but I received this from one of my good friends on none other than my birthday! This is my favorite fossil in my ENTIRE collection! More will come from the Greenriver side of my collection, I just gotta get my camera fixed
  2. I was fortunate enough to be able to visit the American Fossil quarry in Kemmerer Wyoming this past week and had an amazing time. @sseth and his business partners do an incredible job running the quarry and made my experience there a memorable one by giving me the opportunity to find some beautiful fossils over the two days I was there. These finds include a nice Mioplosus, a beautiful Phareodus and dozens of Knightia. I highly recommend the American Fossil Quarry and I am looking to make a second trip back this next summer.

  3. Phareodus preps

    Im still working on getting an air dryer, but still working on fossil fishy's. Here are two Phareodus fishy's ive been working on and ive got another one but that one still has a long way to go. Ive really got too many fossil projects, but for me, thats a good thing. Keeps me busy and out of the bars. I also havent been to a bar for about 20 years. Oh, the fish in the background just needs a little bit of clean up around the jaws mostly but the bottom fish needs a lot of fin work still. Hoping the fins on that one are better than what it seems? RB
  4. Im sure Ive shown this one before, but it was a long time ago. The funny thing is, when I first brought this little slab of rock to my prep bench, I automatically figured it was a Knightia! ha!! I always start on the head when I start prepping a fish and it didnt take long to realize that this was a Phareodus. What a super nice surprize that was! Came out quite nice but it does have a fin problem on the top side. Still, quite a nice little fish of 6 and 1/2 inches! Its now in the display case. Woooooooop!!! Wooooop!! With enough time this little case will be full? RB
  5. Big Fish

    Here is a rather large fish ive been working on for the last 15 years!!! Bout time I finish it up so I can hang it onto the wall. Ive still got to sand some edges so it will fit into the frame Ive already built for it. Then put a 1/2 inch ply backing on it and then,,,,,,, by gooly,,,, it will be ready to hang. I found some old wood on a very delapitated building along side the road one day, so its like that barnwood that everyone likes. plus it looks old too. The fish it old, so why not the wood too. I should have this done in a few days. Woooooop,,,Wooooop!!! I actually prepped this out 11 years ago and its been sittin in a dark shed ever since. Gots the fish, the frame and the ply already to go. Just gunna take a bit of tiime, and the help of my youngest son to help hang it. its quite heavy!!! RB
  6. Three summers ago myself and my two younger sons were digging in the bottom cap just below the 18 inch layer. We found dozens and dozens of fish! My middle son brought some pieces to camp for me too look at. We camp right there in the quarry. At first look I was not too impressed, but put all the pieces into a box to take home and look at later. I can now see that it may be a really good Phareodus? I cut off a couple of pieces to make it easier to glue onto a piece of cement board and then begin prep. there will be some areas of rock building and one area of rebuilding some actual fish that is missing. But over all its looks purty dang good. The rock is very dense and very hard and the bone is very hard too. I can use a half bi-carb and half dolomite mix media to finish it up after all the air scribing first. My fingers are crossed. If I can get this done, it will go to my middle son for Christmas. Wooooop wooooop!!! RB
  7. Green River - June 3-4, 2017

    On June 3rd and 4th I ditched my regular hunting grounds for the opportunity to meet up with a forum member @Seve78 at one of the Pay to Dig quarries in Kemmerer, Wyoming. Tom chose to spend Saturday at Warfield Quarry and Sunday with me at American Fossil (AKA Fish Dig) which is run by our very own TFF member @sseth Tom was an absolute pleasure to dig with and he filled his suitcase with literally tons of treasures to take home, I would meet up again in a heartbeat! I arrived at 9:30am on Saturday and spent about 4 hours helping to prep the site for Tom on Sunday. I split down some of the larger blocks that had been pulled from the wall to allow them to dry. For those of you that have not been to Kemmerer for fish yet, the rock has to be AS DRY AS POSSIBLE, or else it is just a mushy mess that WILL NOT split! Dry rocks are near impossible to achieve with just 1 day of digging! Upon Tom's arrival at around 8:00am of Sunday we got to work! Here is Tom starting his search through some of the rock that had been pulled! Here is a picture of the area I was working. I brought my long chisels and a couple of short ones for good measure. Along with 3 hammers and nippers for trimming down my finds. Both halves of a nice multi plate presented themselves for me about 3 hours in! Once all the rock had been pulled it was time to trim them up for transport. Trusty old table saw, the fastest way in the west to lose a finger! My haul after just 6 hours of total digging time was pretty impressive. All trimmed up and laid out on the table ready to go home, these finds were all delivered to the Morrison Museum of Natural History in Morrison, CO. I wanted them to have some fish for their collections and left everything as found so they could try their hands at prep! The big fish on the front of the table is a 90% complete Phareodus. This is a relatively small one, they could reach up to about 25 inches in length! I left this one with Patrick to give to Seth, maybe he can make something of it! My find of the day though was also my smallest...a Juvenile Amphiplaga brachyptera... This is the RAREST fish the Pay to Dig quarries will let you keep, and only my second one ever found in 4 years of digging Green River fishies. They do not present in the 18" layer I usually dig, only the split fish layers. I found a full grown adult measuring in at just over 5 inches and now this juvenile to add to my collection. I don't usually post much for FOTM, but this guy is headed that way! Whether he wins or not though, he has made me one happy digger! If anyone else is down for a meet-up shoot me a PM! I will be heading back to Seth's quarry on June 24-25 and always love to meet fellow TFF members! Hope you all enjoyed my trip report, see you soon! -Blake As I was leaving the quarry, we had some furry guests waiting in line for their turn to dig up some fishies!
  8. I also brought home a small box of prepped out fossil fish today. Ive got a bunch more in my fossil shed, but those will come home another day, including some nice big ones. Ive got to start displaying them. Oh, now I see that ive got the black myo upside down. Dang! RB
