    Whether you use one eye or two in your fish, you will probably agree that a fish done with no eyes is a no-no. Whoever did this pike has lost his marbles...eh? [​IMG]

    Looks like one I did in 72, when I was 14.
    Used marbles for eyes then

    I'm going to take a wild guess here and say that it's probably a newbie, just making do with what he has available. He is located in Bulgaria, not exactly a hotbed of taxidermy suppliers.

    I think somebody took this "antiquing" thing way too far! Maybe I could use it to train my dog to retrieve pike. I wonder what is inside it.....maybe the original mummified guts?
