Here are my first two brook trout they both have their natural heads, I rebuilt the shrunken areas with apoxie and put a coat of epoxy on the rest of the head. The first one is my oldest daughters fishing contest winner from last year. I put her fish on a premade base. And this one I caught two seasons back at a local stream. These are my 6th and 7th fish overall, I have a great deal of enjoyment in taxidermy and greatly appreciate and advise. Thanks for looking.
