I'm a avid Fisher and I am by no means a taxidermist. I've read on here that people are not fans of the Archie Phillip blanks. My last fish I got 2 days ago was a almost 22 inch 6 pound small mouth. It was painted perfect and on the back it says Archie Phillips. I love themount more then I do my Dennis Arp 8 pound laregemouth. To me it looks more life like but the guy that done the large mouth didn't do the best painting it.
