These are a great combination of fretwork and intarsia. The dark areas (splash, fisherman, and boat) are cut away like a stencil. The dark backing gives it more contrast. I was able to find some small knots for the eyes on both fish. Knots are perfect because they look more like a fish eye. I added a highlight to the eyes to make them more lifelike. Just be sure the knot isn't loose.
These patterns are from the "Small Intarsia Projects" book. 
Wonder Wheel was used for adding texture. Woods Used:  Various shades of Western Red Cedar, Aspen for the White, Soft Maple Heartwood, Blue Pine, Wood knot for the eye. Suggested Blades Gold #5 for Western Red Cedar or any softwood. Platinum Plus #5,  Platinum #5,  TLB #5  for the hardwoods.  PLP-2/0, or TLB #2/0 to cut the interior lines (after the exterior lines are cut).
