    The Month in Fish Pictures" ~Year 6~ Happy New Year Addition 2014!!!!!!!


    A very warm Happy New Year from Hinsdale New Hampshire! Here in New Hampshire as I write this Month in fish pictures it is snowing and around zero. Yes most of the country is cold and in the throws of winter for sure! Around the world many folks are looming at the New Year as an opportunity for great things and I hope you do as well! I hope you had a safe and personally meaningful holiday! I want you to make the most of this year and do one thing for some one else as part of your new years resolution. If we all can do juts one extra things for folks then we can know that we gave the gift of kindness!

    Again want to commend all of you, as there are so many original contributors and many new ones alike that all share in this great string that has been around from over 5 years! I just want to remind and assure folks that we all begin some where and work hard at being the best we can all be as taxidermists. It is and always has been a spot on the taxidermy.net where folks can and do come to show there work with out criticism and hard comments! So lets remember to always keep it that way. As the moderator of this section I do not get to involved with censorship not do I ever want too. So be respectful of all and remember we all have a long way to go and should be enjoying the processes!

    What a truly outstanding Month in Fish pictures this past last month as I took some time during the day week to see all the great looking at some truly inspiring works of fish art!

    We share in fish pictures to find a common place with friendliness and positive comments of motivation as a great place to start in upward in direction of inspiration in being a fish taxidermist! I wish all the best to folks competing in the up coming year and I do wish all the very best in the pursuits of good fish work!

    I do hope you have the opportunity to be thankful for your gifts of great passion and talent as an artist! It is a blessing to me for our lives to be joined from time to time to share and learn from one another so thank you for your great taxidermy work and my your lives continue to be blessed with inspiration!!!!

    I want to personally say thank you for letting me join you again each installment of Fish Pictures to share in your successes and accomplishments! I have seen first hand the great strides so many have made with beautiful fish work! Good for you and congratulations on your hard work!!!!

    I want to also thank all of the great contributors who not only share their personal great talents and work but also rather give such positive inspiration to all of us!

    From beginner's to the best in the world we all join in every month in a critique free and hassle free string with nothing more then great artist and inspiring fish taxidermist and carves get together to share with one another their praise and inspiration of good will and friendship to one another. No egos just friendly folks who appreciate the efforts of others!

    I want to start the New Year with a Recent Tarpon I hope you enjoy the Silver Fish!

    Please enjoy the month of fish pictures and be inspired by all their work this month!

    So here goes!

    I hope you enjoy the Month! See you in February!!!

    So here we go and here is to a great January and a great Month in fish pictures!!!! Enjoy!

    You're Friend

    Hope to see you soon in my travels and be good to one another! Happy New Year!

    My Best!

    Nice work to all....I like that stringer mount Jimmy!
    Here's a 10lb largemouth I mounted in 1990 that came in with a broken caudal. A little repair and cleaning new clear coat and it's good to go on the wall.
    Just to show that a skin mount, if done well and cared for, can stand the test of time.
