    The Month in Fish Pictures "Year10" 4th of August Edition 2017!!!!!!!

    A Warm (scratch that a Hot) Hello from Hinsdale New Hampshire!! What a summer so far! Lots of fishing report of a good year for fish taxidermists! This hopefully means the economy is turning and people are getting back to having fun! Enjoy the summer and take time to have some fun yourself!!!

    Thanks, 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 somewhere 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 their work without criticism and hard comments! So, let’s remember to always keep it that way. As the moderator of this section I do not get too 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 July this past month was as the last month of the calendar year for the month in Fish pictures! 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 upcoming year and I do wish all the very best in the pursuits of good fish work!

    I do hope you can 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 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 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 beginners to the best in the world we all join in every month in a critique free and hassle free string with nothing more than 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 a friend from Georgia Mr. Randy Kittle! Randy is a very accomplished taxidermist and a longtime member of the Fishhead community! I hope you are to inspire and be inspired by the beautiful fish work!

    This is my world show longear sunfish suspended by magnets so it's not touching anything. The base is turned on the lathe from an oak burl. The voids were filled with colored resin to match colors in the fish. Most of the branches are metal and epoxy.

    Great looking Coho,
    Sad to see you didn't list the maker of the replica in your list of credits though.

    Dave certainly makes it easier to win stuff. No doubt there. I wish everyone molded fish as nice as Dave does.

    I have always wanted to order his Coho, and Musky, but haven't had the orders yet.

    Cool catfish .
