    The Month in Fish Pictures" ~Year 6~ March Edition 2015!!!!!!!


    A warm Hello to one and all from Hinsdale New Hampshire! So it is March and it is still cold and snowy around most of the North America! I have heard however that Spring will make an appearance some time soon and cold will make way for open waters and fishing! I sure did have a great time at the Georgia Taxidermy annual convention! State associations are such a great way to meet some cool folks and a equally great way to learn for short money! This month I hope to see you at the Best of the West in Salt lake City, Utah, 12-15 and the Sothern Regionals in Olive Branch, Mississippi the 26-29!


    This year of 2015 is the year of Courage! This year I want to you to consider to try something new or work on some thing that your juts not that confortable with to elevate your skill levels to a new heights! I remind my self personally that it is the day to day things we are so comfortable with and it is the scary things some times we don’t like to do that makes us better at what we do! Give it a shot and lets see you up the game for you!

    Once again want to thank and commend all of you, as there are so countless unique contributors and many new ones alike that all share in this great string that has been around from many, many years now! 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 November for Fish pictures it was and thanks to all the friends sharing their gifts and talents! I took some time during the day week to see all the great looking at some truly inspiring works of fish art!

    We all share in fish pictures as a common place with friendliness and positive observations of inspiration 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 thought it would be different and fun to share a few photos of fish work in progress. We all have the opportunity to share work in progress so maybe a few photos of your work in progress this month might just be fun!

    I want to start the March with some Cool fish photos for the Georgia State Taxidermist Association show, a wonderful young lady from California who was Februaries winner of the Anglers Artistry Cool fish photo contest, and a dedicated taxidermist and most recent Anglers Artistry family member from WY! Please enjoy the month of March and the inspiring fish photos supplies by all the great fishheads from all over the world! Have a great month!

    So here goes!

    I hope you enjoy the Month! See you in April 2015!!!

    So here we go and here is to a great March 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!

    Here’s to great March and lots of Cool Fish Photos! God Bless you one and all and I hope you all have a safe and Blessed 2015!

    My Best!
    Be Inspired!
