    The Month in Fish Pictures "Summer Edition" September / October 2021!!!!!!!

    A warm welcome from Hinsdale New Hampshire!

    Fall is around the corner and deer season will be upon us before you know it! I hope everyone had a good summer and not too many issues with the dreaded virus. The world may be in a different place as well it seems out country but the one factor is we are folks who apricate the art of nature and the love of fish! Keep that in your heart!

    A new install of the month in fish picture for all to enjoy! The shows will be started up again in some states even some in virtual settings! Just shows how passionate we are and resilient we are for the love of what we share!

    Don’t forget to call a friend and talk to folks about how they are doing import I think it is to do this especially during these days!

    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 September/ October with a fun Project with our 2020 Golden ticket winner Ms. Ashley Botts from Campti Louisiana. Ashley visit with us to create a fish display while working on some casting and composition while honing her paint skills.

    Can’t wait to see your beautiful fish work this segment! See you in November 2021! Be “SAFE” and be kind to one another!

    Fall will be here soon so here is to a great Fall 2021!!

    My Best

    Kevin, fantastic finishing job on your Blackfish. The suttle blending you captured is very accurate as is the fine markings in the hard detail. Your rendition is one of the nicest and accurate repo's I have seen. Super job on a tough fish to duplicate!!!!
