I just recently mounted a couple Steelhead that another taxidermist skinned out and soaked in something. I'm not sure what the fish were soaked in, but they were then put back in the freezer. I received the fish and did what I do to every trout I mount. I re fleshed them real good, removed the heads, and put them in alcohol for about a month. The fish are mounted as I said and all of the scales on the both sides of each fish are curled up pretty bad. Any suggestions on how to resolve this problem? Please?

take wax paper and an iron fairly low heat put the wax paper on and iron it ,, good luck
Thanks for the advice. I never tried that approach, but then again this is a first for this problem. I will give it a try tomorrow.
