    The Month in Fish Pictures "Year 12" November Edition 2018!!!!!!!

    A warm welcome from Hinsdale New Hampshire!!! November is progress month it is always fun to not only share the works we are completing for clients or for fun personably but the work in progress! Let’s share some work in progress if you like!

    A huge thanks to the countless contributors and to the many great folks who share in this great tradition that has been around for over a decade It is very true that we all begin somewhere and all the learning and work hard that goes in to the pursuit at being is what makes us the taxidermists we become

    This tradition of the Month in Fish Pictures has 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!

    The month of October was a great month for truly inspiring photos so let’s continue the contributions! 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!

    Inspiration in what we share is part of the friendliness and positive observations of fans of fish work. This is a great place to start in upward in direction of inspiration other with your work regardless of your skill level as a fish taxidermist or fishcarver!

    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 say thank you for join me each month for each installment of the Month in 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 Nov with a progress piece or two from a few recent workshop participants. Mr. Dominic Melanson and Mr. Hannu Sallila.

    Can’t wait to see your work this month! See you in December! Be safe and be kind to one another!

    You're Friend

    I moved shops, and have been busy with that, and mammals, but was finally able to sneak a few fish in last week. Here is a bass that I competed with 8yrs or so ago, and ended up reusing it for a California client's fish order. I had broken a fin and installed a new eye. This is a prime example of how we can learn and grow as artists. Never give up and never stop learning . I'm a sponge. I learn as much as I can. And also smell sometimes. Lol.
    The blank with the new Pec fin added, and new eye installed.

    Close, when it comes to the morphology....indeed Cecil! But it's a fresh water species.

    No Jimmy, I'm sorry...but also very close when it comes to the look! It's a fresh water fish living in rivers and streams, and it's not eating grass like the Amurs. Maybe my quiz is rather dumb to place here, sorry friends....It's a species which only lives endemic in Europe.

    Swissfish...by the shape of the snout it looks to be some type of Whitefish...
    Coregonus lavaretus...European Whitefish?
