I believe it is a fact we are heading away
from taxidermy all the time the man made lake where I
live is release and go for the reproduction no kiddin
Thats a fact there is some really good work today in plastic you can
even get a dinasaur reproduction[head mount]
You tell me where the future is going?

My market is almost all skin mounts. Even if I suggest replicas they want "their REAL fish." I even get requests from people who released a big fish, regretted it, and NOW want to know if I can replace it...with a skin mount. Replicas may have a place, but I don't see them becoming any substantial percentage of my work. Fine with me

you can replace it...with a skin mount, just tell them to go catch it again.

yup skin mounts will always be cheaper anyway
so there will always be those who seek a taxidermist
rather then having a expensive repro
