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


    A Warm Hello to one and all from Hinsdale New Hampshire! May is full blown fishing season here in New England and the bite is on! I sure you take a day or two out of the busy lives we live to catch a fish and enjoy the month of May!

    The World Championships are May 5-9 in Springfield MO I sure how to see you there! It is always a great time and this year show will be a huge event with incredible seminars!

    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!

    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 April with a gentleman that has a deep passion for fish as a professional guild and Taxidermist Mr. David Kelley of Westbrook Maine. Dave guilds for Landlock Salmon and Laker or Togue as they are known in this neck of the woods! Let the month of May be inspiring with 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 May! See you in June 2015!!!

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