    A really big Hello from Hopkins Michigan. I’m on the road this week working on a very large fishy project. Our good friend Terry Weick aka Trashfish has graciously put up with me for a week. I learned about the auto body business this week and how it can apply to taxidermy. Terry is a gracious and most talented friend. I also want to say Hey to all my fellow Michigan Taxidermist Association Members who stopped by and helped out by bringing me things I had forgotten at my shop.

    I know I say it ever week but it is so true! It is a wonderful place where we can come and share our work and be enjoyed for the efforts we make including me!

    I want to thank all of the great contributors who really show not only great talent and work but rather give such inspiration to all of us!

    A great week Fishheads!!!!!

    There was some really inspirational fish work last week I hope you all had a great week my friends and family of Fishheads!!! Let's start off with some Big time thanks to our great contributors this past week!!

    Here's a big hats off to the contributors who shared their talents!

    From beginner's to the best in the world we all join in every week in a critique free and hassle free string with nothing more then great artist and inspiring fish taxidermist and carves get together to share with one another their praise and inspiration of good will and friendship to one another.

    I thought I would start off this week with a few pictures from our great friend and frightenely talented contributor my friend and yours Dave (UFD) Campbell.
    The Pacific Northwest is rich with talent, the city of Tacoma shines ever so bright with the artwork of Dave Campbell. This week it’s my pleasure to share with you a few photos of a breathtaking original Golden Trout by Mr. Campbell himself.

    I hope your week is productive and your freezers a bit lighter. Make money this week and be safe and enjoy your life and your gifts!

    I hope you enjoy the week!
    So with out further ado let's get week # 25 under way.

    So here we go and here is to a great week in fish pictures!!!! #25! Enjoy!

    I hope you enjoy this beautiful Golden Trout by Mr. Dave Campbell

    No fish taxidermy for me this week, but I thought I'd share some fishy artwork by a good friend and tattoo artist of mine. Here are a couple of pics of the brown trout that he did for me this weekend. I personally think they look great and will look better when the redness and swelling leaves and the real colors show through.

    A BIG thanks goes out to Jeremy Hamrick at Thinkin' Ink in Morgantown, WV.

    Great work everybody! No fish for me this week. I'm stuck working on turkeys (Yuck).

    UFD must have come to this planet on a UFO. No human could do work that nice.:)

    What a start this week, great stuff from everybody, but that golden trout is outstanding! Dave, you really know how to get a mount back to life!!
    My contribution for this week is an atlantic salmon skin mount. Custom casted head and painted eye. This guy had quite a bit of character from moving up the river. The skin at the front of the head was nearly completly gone by hitting stones all the time. I tried to keep this in the paint job.

    Everybody have a great week!

    Greetings from Germany

  19. Great week again everbody. Dave C., Dave S., Cory, Oliver & Chad.

    Chad now thats my favorite. Cool tattoo man!!!!!!

    Here's a little Lake Ontario brown. Most of our Lake O browns are carrying lamprey scars and the client wanted this one to show as a "character scar"---gives a rather unique perspective on the whole invasive species issue.
    The more I use Jeff Lumsden's lenses the more I like them. I love the verstatilty and freedom you get with them. Thanks for a great product Jeff!
