    I've only ever mounted small fish up to 9 lb bass. My son recently set a line class record with a 40 lb Alligator Gar on a light fly rod. I would sure like to try to mount this for him. When mounting a fish this big, 56" length & 22" girth, what are some of the best ways to make the body.

    I do half cast on large gar. Use foam instead of fish filler. It takes two people to mix, pour, and train the foam while it expands. The largest I've done this way was a 65 lb gar.
