you do fish with 2 eyes?
Personally, I always put two eyes in my fish these days. Twenty years ago, when customers were much less picky, and I was part-time and quite a bit cheaper, I'd do the one eye trick, and even then I more than once had customers notice, and ask about it.So for me, it's been two eyes in every fish for a long time. Sure I know that some figure it's the wall side and few will even see, I figure for the cost of 1 eye $1.75-2.00, and quite literally just a couple of minutes work, it's worth it in piece of mind knowing that anyone who does look won't see a filled in eye socket, and perceive me as either cheap or one who does work half-assed. I know that some don't agree, and will argue that if you multiply the single eye cost times 100,200 or more fish a season, it adds up to a sizable chunk of change, which I won't argue, but it still comes back to me that it's still only an extra couple of dollars in production cost on an individual job, and good insurance.
since I have Been doing Taxidermy
I fine that haveing two eyes in the mount makes the fish look
more real you also have to think about when you do a fish with only
one eye and others see it they start talking about it and ask where was it done
that to can look bad for a Taxidermist so I find that By doing a good Job in
the start will keep Bringing others to you even if the fish is on
the wall People do look I am known for doing a good Job and thats why
I have alot of work and I'me always looking for more that is why I
