    The Month in Fish Pictures Summer Edition July / August 2022!!!!!!!

    A warm Hello from Hinsdale New Hampshire!

    Summer is here and thus far it’s been a hot transition from Spring to Summer. Some truly wonderful fish photos last segment of the MIFP! So awesome to see some of you and your works in person at some of the shows so far this year and there are more shows still happening this year so I hope to see you at some more of them!

    Shows truly are a great opportunity for folks to see such inspirational work and meet new friends!

    It is the 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. So go to a show if you can and be a part of the passion!

    I have been visiting with you here on the month in Fish Picture’s and being so inspired personally by your efforts and fish work 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!

    Here is to your good health, safe journeys and a life worth living! Keep sharing your gifts of beautiful work!

    Here is the new installment of the month in fish picture for all to enjoy!
    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 few decades, 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 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. No egos just friendly folks who appreciate the efforts of others!

    I’ll start off this segment in TMIFP with a fun fish and great guy Richard “Dick Harwood” of Peru New York. Dick operates a full-time full-service shop in upper State NY! Dick retired for the USMC after a full life of service to the USA!

    Well I’m a hack and got out of it at 40( single sided, and I wasn’t the highest in Michigan) your a bargain man! 30 seems to be around the normal these days and there’s many doing mediocre work at best at that price.

    Hack lol I don't think so! You do great work. As I get more business I go up. Business is slow right now for me. 75% of people not willing to pay the $25

    That’s a shame. Higher I went the more people wanted it. Thankfully I learned to just say no thank you. Love your browns. I gotta say though for 25 per inch I wouldn’t even consider touching a scale! And your actually really good at painting scales! PM me your info. Most people I refer people that ask me to do their fish aren’t taking in any right now. I’ll send them your way and tell them it’s 35 per inch.

    Skin mount Smallmouth and Brook Trout. Both fish were landed by youth anglers! Smallmouth was 6lb 8oz. I did mold the body after mounting for future preproduction work.
