    I am just a part time taxidermist. I am doing my first fishet, any helpful advice? Good form supplier, degreasing? Anything else? There are not many forms to choose from.

    Thanks Craig.

    What are you totally doing? Skinning, tanning it yourself then mount?
    Look like your wanting to go from A-Z here.
    Depending on experience it’s best to send out. Especially if you don’t have the proper equipment. Not saying it can’t be done it’s only harder and you may end up with an inferior product.
    Face needs to be thinned down good .
    Reference is a key here and study it in pieces not the whole face and body.
    Forms mean nothing in reality as the taxidermist must study their subjects in order to make it look realistic. Hence saying reference!
    If your tanning yourself you’ll find all the proper steps in the tanning section here just follow the directions on the choice of tan you use. Some tans need different care I how their products are used and when back in the day it was more easy done as formula where a bit closer now having different tans out there they've changed SO READ THEM PLEASE!
