Designer: Jules Horvath
(Deluxe Signs and Displays)
When Built: July 1967
The late Mr. Horvath and his staff started by welding two large seperate halves of the proposed fish. After the steel was welded in place, strips of plywood were bolted over the framework. Then, chicken wire and fibreglass were used to give the lifelike scale effect. All intricate curves were molded and carved from styrofoam. The colours of the muskie were impregnated right into the fibreglass.
The two halves of the fish were individually hoisted into place and welded to a 12 inch steel I-beam. The fins and tail were then welded to the fish.
Bill Brabrooke submitted the winning name of Husky the Musky. He also included the slogan "Husky the Musky says 'Prevent Water Pollution'"
