    I'd be interested in hearing any commentary on this ad, especially regarding the taxidermists whose names were mentioned in the description.

    The detailed paint on the head is second to none! Definately the best in the whole wide world.

    we are all highly acclaimed in someones eye's aren't we?
    Fish looks o.k. but I don't know about $1000.

    I Wish them good luck in their auction and plenty of high bidders.

    I can't say that I've heard of the taxidermists but I've seen alot better looking fish. At least I feel they're better. Definitely not worth $1000. If so, some of you guys need to raise your prices.....Have any of you heard of the mentioned taxidermists?

    I'm not an expert on brookies but the body looks okay, repaint the head and drop the price.

    Ha! enlarge the close-up head shot. Is that a fuzzy tongue inside the mouth?

    Yeah Paul that head is KILLER!!! The rest of it looks very nice based on my vast experience mounting Brookies (I've done NONE - lol!)

    Maybe a grand IF shipping was included!!!

    I agree the body looks good but the head is lacking color, it's not tied in with the body very well.
     
  10. Gary brings up a good thought. "Hope he gets plenty of high bidder"s.
    Maybe if we all put a fish up on ebay with a very high reserve.....perspective buyers will stop looking to ebay for a cheaper fish or at lleast be more realistic with placing bids on work that IS actually presentable.
