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


    A Warm Hello to one and all from Hinsdale New Hampshire! Summer approaches and the weather has truly been crazy around the Country in the USA. Flooding and tornados and worst, I hope all of our friends and fellow taxidermists around the country are safe during this weather upheaval.

    Sumer brings more taxidermy events and shows to attend. The Worlds have wrapped up and so much inspiration was front and center for all attending!
    I’ll be at a few more shows this month the first will be the New England taxidermist Association annual convention June 5-7 (I’ll be there Saturday) Also I’ll be Judging at the Garden State Taxidermy association show on the 26-28 hope to see you there!

    A few more Great shows to attend this month are Oklahoma Taxidermists Association 11-13, IDAHO TAXIDERMIST ASSOCIATION 11-13, Alabama Taxidermists Association 11-14, The South Carolina Taxidermists Association 19-20, Texas Taxidermists Association 25-27, and the Oregon Taxidermists Association 25-27.

    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 June with a few fish photos for a few works of fish inspiration to me! Our good friend Mr. Mike Sweda from Germantown WI came out recently and worked on a pedestal Walleye a dandy at 12.5 LBs! Also a real cool Tiger trout for Mr. Robert Griffith of Finleyville PA, Mr. Shane Osborn from Cedar city UT has a Chum Salmon this month! I’m so proud that folks are motivated and driven to work hard to create beautiful fish work And I’m happy and so very proud to be a teacher today who can be a part of the process.

    Let the month of June 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 June! See you in July 2015!!!

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

    Great work everyone, I have not posted on here in a long time, thought I would share an entry I brought to the world show. I used to mount a ton of walleye when I had my shop in western ny 30 years ago being so close to Lake Erie.

    Outstanding work!

    Rich, Impressive as always.

    Brian, I wanted to meet you and talk to you about your fish, but everytime I seen you, you were busy with someone else . Your fins on that walleye were absolutely out of sight! That was my favorite part about your fish . The fins were perfect. Well done.

    You should have just joined us in the conversation, there is always room for another fishhead.

    Glad you liked the fins, they were far from perfect, but the next ones will be better! ;)
