    The Month in Fish Pictures "Spring Edition" MARCH/ APRIL 2020!!!!!!!

    A warm welcome from Hinsdale NH! Spring approaches and so does the Show season! I hope you can make the opportunity to attend a convention or 2 this year!! State shows near you are awaiting your participation and fellowship. That is a great opportunity to learn and make lifelong friends! I hope to see you at a few this year!

    Over decades worth of contributors and to the many great folks who share in this great tradition! We all begin somewhere and all the learning and work hard that goes in to the pursuit at being is what makes us the fish artists we become

    Share your work!!!!! 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!

    2019 was a great year for truly inspiring photos so let’s continue the contributions! Thanks to all the friends sharing their gifts and talents! 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!

    You’re here reading because you want to be the best Fishhead you can be! 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 Bi-Monthly 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!

    All are welcome!!!! 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 March with a few photos from some true up and comers! Brooke “Mort” Mortenson from Idaho spend some time with us to learn traditional skin mounts. A great couple from Canada also came to NH to work on some fish work! Carolyn and Darren Carter from Alberta Canada came out to works on skin mounted fish work!

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

    Spring will be here before you know it!

    My Best

    Rick Krane

    Good show, guys!

    I am new to this, with just a pair of smallies under my belt, before these two. (all repro's)
    So, obviously...these are my first attempts with these fish.
