    Warm welcome form Hinsdale New Hampshire!!!!! Sorry for the delay in getting the week in fish pictures up. I wish all of you a safe and happy Thanksgiving! It is the time of the year we as families typically get together to enjoy the day of the Bird and reminisce over the lives we have spent. Around this time I go back over they years as it is now an look at the week in fish pictures from week 1 up to now. It is nothing short of amazing to see the beautiful work and to really take notice how the advancements and the talent level gets improved week after week. I truly love to take notice of the improvements in some individuals from when they first posted a fish picture to know!!! Incredible!!! Please have a a safe and joyful day with your families and if your family are not near know that you are thought of warmly with mine and so many others right here!

    I want to personally say thank you for letting me join you every week in your successes and accomplishments! I have seen first hand the great strides so many have made with beautiful fish work! Good for you and congratulations on your hard work!!!!

    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 would like to start this week with a few Simple skin mounted Largemouth Bass this is Thanksgiving week with an effort of fish work done by Anglers Artistry.

    Rick, great looking LMBs – I’m having a hard time trying to pick a favorite! And snakeawave, those are some of the neatest metal fish I have seen you do so far! 8)

    Here are a couple Steelhead that I recently finished, one is a skin mount and the other is replica, both about 38” or so:



    I also wish everyone a safe and Happy Thanksgiving! :)
  12. Wow Nice fish so far this week.

    Beautiful fish Jknuth ;D

    I haven't done a skinmount in over a year. Maybe after I get some of these deerheads out of the way I'm gonna do a skinmount. I have been concentrating on replicas so much I have absolutely ignored the skinmount.

    Definitely an art in itself ;D Great job !

    Hello everybody,
    it´s quite a time I posted my last mount. So here is my first atlantic salmon spring/summer-color replica, custom cast (thanks to red stag who helped me out with a tail, because it was missing when I molded the salmon, thank you Ollie!!!!). Hard to post after UFD´s steelhead. Great job everybody else.
