I just applied the second and last coat of varnish on these four fish mounts. Posting them on here to share with you. Not to advertise. I have been retired from my taxidermy business for over 10-years. These skin mounts, using the real heads, are for myself and family.

I would like to say something in support of professional taxidermist (esp. those specializing in fish mounts.): There are numerous taxidermists out there today who mount fish with artistic quality that far surpasses what I'm showing you here. The best of them produce an absolutely awesome product. Examples of super artistic talent!

Uh... these are probably the best I've ever seen. If you know of a taxi who does "better" work, please let me know.

Incredible detail and work.

Like I said, you can come up and I'll give you a place to stay, and you can work on the pile of dead stuff in my garage. :D Oh, I'll take you fishing on the weekend.

I agree. I normally don't like trout mounted because they are impossible to make look good. Or so I thought. Wow!
