Outstanding work here!!!
Here is a 50 year old skin mount Atlantic Sailfish just restored.
Heres my first fish mount, 90% thanks goes to you guys here at taxidermy.net forums. I have been a lurking sponge for the last 5 months or so sucking up all the information I could before attempting my first mount. Its a 27" 10.5 lb walleye I caught back in October. I was going to bring it to a local taxidermist who is known for doing fantastic work on fish, but I heard his house / shop was flooded, and I was un-impressed with some of the other fish mounts I have seen around the area so I decided I wanted it on the wall sooner & tackled it myself. I work at a body shop so I had access to lots of different toners & pigments and practiced on a few walleye fillet skins I saved from other fishing trips until I found the right colors to use on the final mount. This is the first part of a display I plan to put together, I'll post more pics as other mounts are added.
Thanks again for all the information it's been a real help. and the photos of the work on here are amazing.

Wow! For your first, that walleye is REALLY nice. The different photos clearly show that you did a lot of things accurately. You obviously have some real talent. That someone can do a fish like that on their first attempt is also a testimonial to the value of this website for anyone, new or experienced, at mounting fish. Congratulations!!!
