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


    Happy Summer from Clemmons North Carolina and the North Carolina Taxidermy Convention!!! What a great show and lots of world and National Champions here! What a testimony to what kind of a draw the NCTA show truly is for the membership! I hope to share some fishy photos from the show!

    Next Week I’ll be a part of an equally cool show will take place in Scarborough Maine called the Northern New England Championships! Check out there web site and if you can joins us at the show held at Cabalas on August 8-10 I hope to see you!

    I want to add that there will be a fun family event at Anglers Artistry October 11th 2014 for more info for a fun time for family and fishheads check it out at https://www.facebook.com/Rick.Krane.Anglers.Artistry

    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 month of August with the winning fish of the most recent Anglers Artistry Cool fish photo contest for July! Mickey Bowman of Lawton, Oklahoma Each month folks have the opportunity to share their work just like the month in Fish pictures but with a chance to win stuff and have fun there too!

    Great bunch of fish so far. Kevin, being in GA. as well, I have paid closer attention to your work and I have noticed the progression of your skills over your earlier posts. Your colors are now applied with a softer touch, creating a more natural finish. Awesome trout head. URMRK, really nice job on the repo bass. All the talent displayed here is both inspiring and a little depressing.

    I see TMIFP is a little slow so far this month. Everybody must be out fishing.
    I'll throw in a couple more Chromers I just finished.

    Largemouth Bass I did 9 years ago in a taxidermy course. i figured taxidermy wasn't for me so i haven't done a fish since then.i found this site and have enjoyed seeing the amazing work you all put out and it inspired me to try a fish again.so i bought a rick krane dvd and had so much fun with it that i couldent stop painting so i might have over painted a bit but had a great time doing it!so here is my contribution to this month in fish pictures didn't think i would ever be putting one on here so thank you all for sharing your amazing work and advice on this forum! god bless :)
