It is a hard thing to write about the loss of a friend. I'm have never been short for words but I sit here very deep in thought and in memory about my friend Sam and his family. I have been traveling and returned to prepare to see my friend Sam and now I realizes that this will not be. Im so saddened and sorry! As a teacher it is natural to stick up a friendship as I have with many over they years but a few leave a mark on your place where those who can do. Sam was not only a Anglers Artistry member he was a friend to my family.

We were working on a project which is my honor now to complete gratefully! I'm so very sad as I sit here as man thinking of the great jury Sam takes to the promise of a seat at the table! I know he will be loved and here missed!

My prayers go out to the entire family of Sam Carrafiello. Laurie God holds him near and dear now!

Beginners / Re: Have everything to get you started

this is an awesome deal. 

 Wish I could of gotten this when I started.  I've invested thousands in supplies and tools just to get started and do a decent mount.  I'm licensed now and have a business but am still new so I'm still in the red.  I'm still buying tools and equipment that would of made life easier a couple years ago.

Fish Taxidermy / Re: Need help with a very dark small outh

I paint all smallmouth as if it were a replica. prime, seal, antique and paint to match reference. I attempted all of the ways suggested to lighten them in the past and always ended up priming them anyway.

You can do either of the above. Different strokes for different folks.

I just mounted a largemouth and the skin dried really dark. I whited out with Lifetone's Off white but not all the fins. Actually i did white out the caudal fin as it needed some major repairs and whiting it out allowed me to blend it better.

Then sealed with a couple of coats of Ace's clear Lacquer sealer in a can.

Then painted the whited out areas with dark brown.

Next buffed the dark brown areas with fine steel wool to create detail and painted like a repro.

I do this as I have total control on the outcome of the fish vs. being stifled by a dark skin.

Another alternative is 50/50 Clorox bleach and water dubbed on and rinsed off.  Let skin dry and then seal and paint. Not my favorite alternative although it is less work.

Lifesize Mammals / Re: Cool picture of coyote swimming

Anybody see a woodchuck (groundhog) swim?  Had one swimming across one of my ponds a few years ago. Nailed it with the .22 after it got out on the other side as I can't take a chance on it digging through one of my dikes. Otherwise my motto is live and let live.

As we all know woodchucks climb trees too.

Haven't see a coyote climb a tree yet, but never say never with these clever animals.
