Must it have a white background?
It just looks very bland and uninviting to me.
I think there is too much use of a casual font as well.
here it is with only a few tweaks.
Love....Jill

I like Jills better too, but thought it was bad enough nicking her ideas without just stealing the whole design.

Im sure Jill will be flattered, otherwise she would not have posted..........She is in the UK soon, so poss payment in BEER..........Yup I like Jills design too, very warming and draws you in........Think in addition to the colour, Jills font choice is softer.......

Jill has demonstrated that you don't need the 2nd 3rd 4th
Just 2 3 4 is understandable

But a great improvement on the first

Kev feel free to use the whole idea.
But what you did looks far more inviting than the first one. I like how you did the water.
I didn't think you needed the rd, th, etc.
My header font is a beta from Art & Signfonts called "Truckin".
They are also going to be releasing a font called "Jillbeans" real soon but it's rather homely.
hahaha
Our Opening Day was just this past weekend, my younger son had a blast fishing for trout.
No problemo, I like it when a man listens to me!
It's a rare thing.

I wanted to put something down in the black panel on the bottom.
Glad you did!

You also solved the rd and th dilemma nicely!

I like that last one Kev..........I think the only thing that niggles me a bit about it is that the text runs too close to the fisherman. I think if you increased the margins slightly (left & right) it would make it just a little bit less cluttered


Looks good though and nice idea Jill :D
