Love it, but coating peeled.....
Comments about Product: I bought this because my husband is a fly fisherman. It lasted about a year before the gray color coating peeled off the front part of the fish. Now only the white resin shows in the peeled spots.
I turned him around so that the white faces the house, but it is disappointing, because I think he a great addition to our flowerbed. When it rains, water pools in the spot where we placed him, so it looks like he's jumping out of the puddle.
We learned our lesson with another rain gauge about removing the glass tube before freezing weather arrives, so that hasn't been a problem. We could never find a tube replacement for that first gauge, so it is an advantage to be able to buy one for the fish!
I will considering buying another fish, but I wish this one had not deteriorated so fast. We didn't have any especially terrible weather this year.
