soaking question

Discussion in 'Fish Taxidermy' started by elk74, Apr 25, 2010.

  1. I have not done many fish and i am wondering how long i can soak a trout skin in dawn/borax and water solution ,will it do the skin any harm if it soaks for lets say 24 hours or is that fine? Thanks for your input. ???

    ryanstraw my first brook trout on a fly 13"

    24 hours can be fine but I just soak it in dawn soap and water OR borax and water not both. mostly you want to soak it for about 12-16 hours but 24 hours will do fine
