    The Month in Fish Pictures "Year 12" February/ March 2019!!!!!!!

    A warm welcome and A great 2019 from Hinsdale New Hampshire!!! As the country is in the throes of the cold it is ice fishing season for a lot of folks on the north! With Ice fishing comes a chance to create more beautiful fish work!

    The Show season is in swing now so there will lots of new and wonderful photos to share this year!

    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 January 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 February with a Beautiful Bluegill and a Striped Bass from our friend and newest Taxidermist from Harrison Maine Mr. Pete Moser. Pete is spending a few weeks with learning how to create works of fish art. I want to share his first 2 fish. Way to go Peter!

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

    Heres to a great 2019
    Please enjoy the work of Mr. Peter Moser of
    Harrison Maine!!

    Nice! Heck of a job on those Striper markings! One of the more difficult things to pull off well IMO! Very nice!

    Swissfish the Rudd is outstanding! What amazes me is how you paint individual chromataphores in the eyes and face!

    Thanks a lot my friend Sotired! Sir, I'm glad that you see and dignify this. You know, when I study my reference pics of that fish I'm working on, I see such details, and then I can't otherwise than to try to reproduce them as accurate as possible on my mount.

    Beyond incredible work. Do you paint under a magnifier? .. Paintbrush with a single hair or bristle on the end?

    Thank you so much Sea Wolf! Yes, exactly....I use all what you mentioned; on the paintbrush depending on the size of the fish, I sometimes leave 2-3 hairs, lol.
