    ryanstraw my first brook trout on a fly 13"

    Just finished a few mounts that are a couple of firsts for me. These are my first palomino and largemouth bass and my second yellow perch. I thought I would start off small so I bought a bunch of repro baitfish from lake country. Thank you for any advice!

    Open up a Photobucket account and upload your pictures full size and then copy the IMG code and paste it in your posts. From what I see your fins look good no flagging. You kept them close to the body. Not bad I like from what I can see the trout the best. You could email me the full size pictures and I would post them for you?

    Are these fish you molded and cast or skin mounts?

    All three are repros from Lake Country and are just baitfish (thought I would start off small) the largemouth is 6" the palomino 9.25" and the yellow perch 8"

    I didn't know they made repro bass that small. I thought they were skin mounts. LoL!

    lol they are repros but paintwise was from a couple juvenile bass I have as pets, and a palomino from one I caught last summer. The perch I attempted to paint with the memory of the colors (didnt take pics) I was happy Lake Country had almost all of the exact sizes that I had so I got a few to practice on.
