I have been doing birds for several years now and do an occasional mammal or three each year. I went to Idaho earlier this year and scored on 2 nice chocolate phase bear. When looking at what I wanted to do with them, I ran across this and my mind was made up this is what I had to do (with slight modifications). So while waiting for my skins to come back from the tannery, I started to work on the other aspects of the mount. I ordered all my fish stuff and hope to get the first repro under my belt soon. I have watched this DVD about 6 times now and have been stalking the fish forums for some time now. Damn it's expensive to start to do fish!!! Hope to make a little progress this weekend on my first trout. Guess I could have picked a harder species to start with huh? lol This repro is only 13.5" and damn those scales are small! :-\ Thank god for the opti-visor!
