    The Month in Fish Pictures "Spring Edition" MAY/ JUNE 2020!!!!!!!

    A warm welcome from Hinsdale NH! Crazy times we are in now with the Covid -19. Stay healthy and prepare for better times to come once again as they will be here soon! I have talked to so many folks in the industry and learned of stories of folks dealing with it all! The important thing is to remember that we are resourceful and filled with ingenuity! This skill gives us an opportunity to ready ourselves for the opening of the country and the world. Stay positive, keep creating and working hard and take a moment to call a friend or text someone you care about!

    Over the past decade’s a wealth of contributors and many great folks who take time to share in this great tradition! We all begin somewhere and all the learning and work hard that goes into the pursuit at being is what makes us the fish artists we become

    Why so we share your work!!!!! This tradition of the Month in Fish Pictures has always 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!

    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 inspired to be the best Fishhead you can be! Always 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 personally say thank you for joining 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!!!!

    A BIG 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 levels of artists 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 May with a few photos from a return Rob Brozovich from Colorado spend some time with us to learn some painting techniques on a Brookie and a Cutthroat

    Can’t wait to see your beautiful fish work this segment! See you in July! Be “SAFE” and be kind to one another!

    Summer is around the corner and we’ll be on the water soon enough!

    My Best
    Rick Krane

    Skin mount of a Pearl fish male (Rutilus meidingeri) in full breeding condition. I think it's obvious from where the name of this European endemic species comes from....? The real head has been used. IMG_2113_©.JPG

    Nicely done Bruce, if you don’t mind me asking , how much you getting for a crab mount like that ? I’m color blind so I can’t do fish or paint things with colors and tinting . Might get you to do a crab or 2 for me personally. Thanks

    Glen. I take whole crab apart, clean everything out, preserve and re assemble wiring legs and claws then coloring with pastels. I get 325.00 for the crab plus any special base. Most are done on basket tops. I do around 45 a year because of where we live
