An Update on Ed Walicki

Hello Friends in Carving -

Many of you know of Ed Walicki, the long-time fishcarver and instructor, and owner of and on-line shops. You may not know that Ed has been battling esophageal & bone cancer for some time and is seriously ill.

The length and severity of Ed's illness has drained the family finances. Kristen Walicki has worked to keep shipping orders, but orders have dwindled as some thought they were a burden on the family. If you need fish carving supplies, material and instructional DVD, please do visit the shop at

In an effort to support Ed and Kristen, the web site has been created. At the web site you can get an update on Ed's ongoing battle, send him a message, donate to the family or visit eBay auctions to benefit Ed and Kristen. You can also go directly to the eBay auction by clicking HERE.
