A quick little build, made from a vintage Barber's cologne sprinkler, and bits of discarded toys and springs.
I made the fishing rod from a Bamboo skewer shaved down, and bound on brass wire rings and a reel, the water droplets are two pack epoxy!.

It's obviously a smallmouth brass.

ETA: The real-life smallmouth bass is sometimes also known as the bronze bass.

He is rather cute - puts me in mind of the characters in the film Robots.

Hi Drew P, a smaller piece like this, normally goes for around €60,00, or £50 ish.  It's a piece for my upcoming exhibition and sale at the Tattoo Convention at Tours here in France,
