|Do you want the "real" fish you caught
preserved as a trophy?
|We use the complete "original" skin, including all fins,
head, & teeth.
"The Real Deal" - Trophy
|There is "nothing wrong" with keeping a few fish to eat or have mounted in a lifetime!
Catch and release seasons - size & bag limits protect the species. If you keep any fish to
eat, let us clean them (boneless) for the skin. Don't waste the skins! We can use
them, due to freezer spoilage, catch and release, and (fish of a lifetime) fish caught out
of season or in years past. We also need extra skins for students and other taxidermists.
Catch and release fishermen only - go to reproductions and replicas.
|Don't waste the fish skins !
|Fresh Northern Pike, Unskinned.
|Mounts in process . . .
|Finished Smallmouth bass mount
|All mounts require airbrush painting
to restore coloration.
|We use strong fin backing to protect the fins from being
broken after it is mounted.
Shrinkage areas are built up with epoxies before painting.
