    Today, I received an order for several different fish that were caught on a recent Alaskan fishing trip. The client caught: a 18" Canary Rockfish, a 15" Kelp Greenling, 2 China Rockfish (16" & 12"), a 37" Ling Cod, a 14" Irish Lord, 16.5" Quill Back Rockfish, a 20"5 Black Rockfish, and a 19" Copper Rockfish. The client supplied all fish, except the 37" Ling Cod. He is willing to accept skin mounts or replicas of these fish. I have searched every supplier in which I am familiar, and haven't came up with a single "hit" in the order. I could skin mount these or custom mold each. I was looking for any experience in skin mounting these and any problems (oil) that maybe associated. I am also interested working a deal with any individual who may have a similar custom mold of one of these fish. The biggest problem, I am incurring, is locating a 37" Ling Cod replica. If anyone knows of a similar mold, please pass on the location to me. If anyone has any mounting experiences or molds of these oddities, I would love to hear from you, also.

    Have you tried Dave at Fisherman's tale ?
    try this link www.envision3d.ca to his new site, it takes a little finding but there is a link on there to his "additional" fish list.
