Guys I don't mount fish for clients. I've done several of my own and family members, but they just aren't on my taxidermy brochure because I never got many requests to do them. So anyway, I've gotten 4 calls this year about trout here in PA. First off I tell them I don't do fish and point them to this site to find someone who does. Most guys ask what a fish cost per inch. ALL FOUR CALLERS SAID 12.50 AN INCH WAS JUST ROBBERY AND THERE IS NO WAY A 24 INCH TROUT IS WORTH THAT MUCH. I explained to callers that it was the average rate and some are allot higher than that. I just thought it was interesting and worth passing along. That's four mounts that someone could have gotten if the prices were just a little lower. Trust me I'm laughing, that's four clients that no one needs anyway. I've been a taxidermist for close to 30 years. I understand the price scale, the reasons why the price is what it is.......but I think the general public (at least the 4 callers) are under the impression that a fish shouldn't cost more than 10.00 an inch. One caller actually said he laughed aloud and hung up on another taxidermist who quoted him $12.50 an inch. Again, just passing along some information I thought was worth passing along for you fish guys. Food for thought.
