    20190828_173032.jpg I was wanting to know if someone knew whose mount this is ? There's a guy in Alabama that has this fish and alot of other mounts on his Facebook I know are not his . He has three pictures of my mounts on there also . I was just wanting to get in contact with the person who mounted this trout to let them know . I'm sending a legal letter to this individual for him to remove my picture at once. I dont want to bash him on here but send me a message and I'll give you his info so you can see if he has any of your pictures on there too .
    Thanks ! Tommy

    From what little I can see of the habitat, it almost looks like something Luke Filmer/Blackwater Trading out of Alaska maybe? Frank Kotula? Or Gary Bruch?

    Yeah that's some of the guys I thought about also . I've been searching on websites trying to find that exact fish but haven't yet . I want them to know this low life is using their picture also
    Thanks ! Tommy

    Yeah, me too! Someday, maybe if I'm lucky somebody will steal and use one of my pics - ha! (Truth be told thieves can't do it as most of my website pics are "write-protected". Otherwise, I'm SURE they'd be stealing MY photos - ha! ;)

    Not mine but I know the feeling had a guy here Redneck taxidermy doing the same thing.
    One phone call is all it took for him to take the stuff of his page. I told him 24 hrs to change or we’re in court. ( it was a record turkey I did and he claimed I did a different pose for him) lol I still had the contract and said we’ll let the judge decide!
    Naming the person is not bashing it’s letting others know to check out their site.

    I had three of the same pics on two differnt web sites called them direct, and was removed ASAP
    It will come back to haunt them
    If they can’t do the quality
    Then the word gets around
    Archie Phillips told me years ago
    Price means nothing after the purchase
    The quality is what will kill you later

    I looked at his fb page and saw this Brown trout. It's way beyond his fish skills.

    A reverse image search popped up that image on a German website in 2010. The website has since been closed though. It was something like raubfisch praeparations.de

    Pretty sad when one resorts to using other's work on one's website. But then there are some real pieces of work in this industry.
