    Anyone besides McKenzie's have wiper fish forms? Or can anyone create the specific size needed?

    If I can't find the exact size fish form online. Do any of the online taxidermy companies custom carve the specific size needed? Or does anyone else custom carve fish forms?

    When I skin mounted a wiper I just ordered a LMB ( or maybe KY Bass I can’t remember) form that was close but ever so slightly larger and modified/carved it down with knife, stanley pocket plane, Dremel, and sander.

    I would suggest learn how to carve a body,
    It’s really simple
    I think frank k has a tutorial or a dvd/ cd
    Took me about a day to figure it out
    Jim Allred showed me years ago
    And I slapped my self
    Why pay for someone else’s body when I can carve one the really fits my fish

    got to give thanks to Jim frank and Rick
