    The Month in Fish Pictures "New Year’s Edition" January / February 2022!!!!!!!

    A Happy New Year to one and All! So Here We GO!!!

    Study, Paint, Refence…… Repeat! Somewhere in-between the lines of effort and a plan we find ourselves in the pursuit of learning!

    Inspiration is the fuels in which we burn our passions to be the best we can be all awhile having fun and enjoying the world of Fish Taxidermy, Fish carving, Fish art in whatever form.

    All the year I have been visiting with you here on the month in Fish Picture’s and being so inspired personally by your we find ourselves in 2022. The world maybe a challenge right now at many levels but the fish don’t care and we as inspiring artist have fish work to do!

    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 as that’s not what I’m here for... So please 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 Fish-carver!

    You’re here reading because you want to be inspired to be the best Fish-head 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.

    I always forget to take before pics but this musky that came in with all fins broke and the head falling off and one of the worst paint jobs I've ever seen on a musky. He originally had a guy near me mount it, cause he was cheaper. Anywho here's the polished turd PXL_20220105_161944035.PORTRAIT.jpg

    I'm sure you didn't but did you take the time to add up and tell him how much money he "saved" by going to the cheaper guy? I didn't think so . . . LOL Great save

    If you are talking to me, I did discuss it with him and now he has seen the error in his ways. The next day after picking the fish up he dropped in with a bass and a walleye to be redone.

    This is the not a "Fish Guy" again Mud. Did you mold the fins separately on that? If so that's amazing how seamless it looks. Great work as always

    No all the center line fins are molded intact. Paired fins are not.
