    I am searching for a talented fish taxidermist that has expertise with tiger trout. I recently moved to trophy tiger trout country, and I anticipate I will be getting one mounted in the not too distant future. (I fish a lot!) However I've looked at quite a few mounts and aside from some anatomical issues there are some pretty scary paint jobs out there. I'm hoping maybe some of the ultra talented fish taxidermist that frequent this site can post up a pic or two of tiger trout they have mounted. If anyone knows of a expert tiger trout taxidermist I would love to know who it is?

    I would recommend Frank Kotula. He is on here and got one of his on the back of the vandykes catalog!! It is amazing!!

    Thanks sir for the compliment.
    Yes tigers are fun to do but not knowing where your from I do know of others that are qualified plus price comes as a factor also. The cheap becomes expensive

    Scroll down to my post "Congratulations to Frank Kotula" and scroll down a few posts and you will see his fish. The picture does not do it justice but it will give you an idea.

    "THIS IS NOT MY FISH" However it may belong to someone on this site. I made a copy of it to use as reference. I thought it was pretty good too.

    Frank can certainly do you a nice job on a Tiger. If you live out west you might also check John Holly in Mapleton Utah. He does a lot of them.

    I live in Utah so that John Mapleton recommendation is perfect. Thank you. With that said I'm willing to ship to about anywhere in the states if I can get the best.
