you do fish with 2 eyes?

Two eyes always for me

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.

two eyes are Better then one

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
